Griffin Road at Dykes Road, Southwest Ranches, FL 33331
Situated at the corner of Dykes and Griffin Roads, this lovely 26-acre property has been considered for many different types of outdoor public recreation and Town purposes. Past plans included a town center and administrative complex, a replicated Native American village, a dog training facility and park.
Since acquiring the Sanctuary property, the Town has completed multiple phases of natural area restoration and landscaping improvements such as removal of invasive exotic overgrowth and installation of a diverse palette of native trees and shrubs on the site.
Otherwise currently undeveloped, the site is designed to offer recreational improvements including passive open space playfields, an outdoor amphitheater, enhanced wetlands, historical and environmental education, equestrian amenities, trails, and a neighborhood park serving the Town through the Green Meadows area. The development of this facility will be phased as funding allows.
