BEST NEIGHBORHOOD PARK 2016
Based on Customer Satisfaction Survey Results
On March 27, 2006, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to open this community center. The 1.52-acre site is located within the Municipal Services District (formerly unincorporated Broward County). At the request of the Boulevard Gardens Community Group, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners approved the development of the park. Amenities include
picnic tables, benches, grills, a lighted concrete pathway, and game equipment (basketball net, tetherball, etc.).
The community center offers a free After-School Program for ages 6 to 17, as well as a free Summer Recreation Program and youth sports development programs. The community center also offers senior programs that emphasize healthy living and nutrition. For more information on these programs, visit our Activities and Programs Web page.
We also feature the Walk With Ease program for seniors looking to stay fit. For more information on the Walk With Ease Program, please visit the program Web page.
