The New River Greenway adds another outdoor recreational gem to Florida’s chest of natural treasures. Situated on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale, the paved pathway begins at the Everglades border and heads east along the New River Canal, ending at State Road 817/University Drive.
Enjoy looking for iguanas and wading birds along the canal, while never being far from shops and restaurants should you wish to head off the trail for something to eat or drink. Although there are five major intersections, you’ll cross them safely using the pedestrian traffic lights. Note that the trail is largely unshaded, so don’t forget your sunscreen.
If you have some time, explore Markham Park on the trail's west side. It sprawls more than 600 acres, offering such diverse activities as a model airplane field, a target range, mountain bike trails, stargazing at the Fox Observatory, lake fishing, and camping.
Parking is available in Markham Park (16001 W. State Rd. 84) on the western end of the trail.
