This approximately 110-acre multipurpose facility is the first Broward County regional park to be acquired and developed through the Broward County Commission's 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond Program, a historic measure that passed with 74 percent voter approval.

Public Art and Design: Pennsylvania-born, New York-based artist Alice Aycock was commissioned in 2004 to design a water feature at the U.S. 441/State Road 7 entrance to the park. The project, Whirls and Swirls and a Vortex on Water, was completed in summer 2008 through the Broward County Public Art and Design program, which at the time allocated two percent of the total new construction budget for Broward County government facilities for commissioned artists to provide design expertise and to create artworks within a broad range of capital improvement projects. The metal, steel, concrete, and acrylic sculpture hovers slightly above water in an elliptical-shaped pool. Massive metal ribbons spiral around an acrylic sphere that has an internal sculptural element, alongside a metal vortex that delves beneath the water's surface. Integrating nature, science, art, and technology, the artwork's composition refers to the dynamic and tumultuous weather patterns in South Florida and the gravitational forces present on the earth and throughout the solar system, illustrating the expanding universe and underwater marine life.
