Parks and Recreation

The median age of Coral Springs residents in the 2007 census was 37.1—which translates to families on-the-go. Often, they’re headed to one of the city’s 60 community and neighborhood parks. A town favorite is the new and improved high-tech Slide & Glide playground at Betti Stradling Park.

Amenities from the Cypress Water Park to jogging paths and an abundance of different sport leagues are available throughout the city.

Many of our sports league programs rely on these grounds to practice and compete—take your pick from basketball, tackle and flag football, cheerleading, Little League baseball, T-ball, soccer, softball, lacrosse, roller hockey and swimming.

Residents also enjoy sanctuaries set aside as environmentally sensitive lands. Both Red Lichen’s 13.9 acres and Sandy Ridge Sanctuary’s 38 acres are available at scheduled times for guided tours.

The Sawgrass Nature Center and Wildlife Hospital recently opened, allowing residents and visitors to learn more about our unique South Florida environment and its many wildlife inhabitants. Adjacent to the nature center is the Wildlife Hospital, which serves as a home to injured, sick and orphaned baby wild birds, mammals and reptiles. These animals are given quality care, rehabilitation and then released back into the wild.

Even dogs have their chance to run and play at Dr. Paul’s Pet Care Center Dog Park, a two-acre section developed with a veterinarian’s input to allow our four-legged friends the best in healthy living. Here you’ll find a dog obstacle course, play equipment, water fountains and picnic shelters.

The Honda Classic moved to Eagle Trace, then to Heron Bay golf course in 1984, bringing national attention to Coral Springs. Although the tournament moved on in 2002, residents and visitors alike continue to find challenge in these fairways.

Tee times are also available at Heron Bay and the Country Club of Coral Springs.
