The Town of Southwest Ranches is lush with greenery and we have made it a priority to protect the beautiful open spaces in our Town. Since incorporation in June 2000, the Town acquired approximately 150 acres of land for parks and open spaces.
Among the many existing and planned amenities for Southwest Ranches’ parks are: trailhead facilities, picnic areas, grills, play areas, restrooms, horse trails, fitness courses, nature trails, boardwalks, multipurpose trails, fishing, and historical education. Park properties are located near each neighborhood in Town. Each of our parks has been funded, in part, by State and County grants, and amenities have been planned so that each neighborhood will enjoy a park that, while providing recreational space for the entire Town, is uniquely its own.
The following properties are in various stages of development or will be developed for the enjoyment of all residents and visitors. For more information on any individual park, click on its name.
