Throughout most of the United States, a park is a grassy area, perhaps with a swing set, benches, or even an area set aside for picnicking. We’re particularly lucky here in Hollywood to have West Lake Park available to the public, which features all of that and more.
Some of the West Lake Park amenities are those you’d expect of any good park—sports facilities, a path for biking, jogging, and walking, a picnic area, a nature trail, and a playground. But, thanks to the marina, West Lake Park becomes so much more than the classic park experience. with three miles of mangrove estuary and uplands, the park includes 47,800 feet of waterfront shoreline and 20,600 feet adjacent to the mangrove area. It’s hard to not be on the water here.
And, by extension, it’s nearly impossible to resist unwinding as you walk along the water, float along in a boat, or just sit and enjoy the view. Take in nature, both flora and fauna, and breathe in the fresh outdoor air. No matter how you choose to spend your time, one thing is for sure: you’ll be able to find something to love at West Lake Park.
