One of the things I love most about working with people looking at Davie FL homes for sale is telling them about all the parks in the area. We’ve got parks for just about everything. They give you the chance to get outside and enjoy South Florida’s natural beauty. In the case of Vista View Park, it’s a great place to relax, work in some fitness training or have fun at the Park’s special events.
Vista View Park Overview
Vista View Park is located on 142nd Street; Orange Drive runs along its south border. The park covers 272 acres of hills and meadows and offers lots of opportunity for outdoor fun.
Picnic Shelters: If you’re in the mood for a picnic, there are freestanding picnic areas for you to enjoy on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re planning for a crowd, there are eight shelters with picnic tables, grills and electrical outlets. The different shelters can hold between 20 to 90 people. You can reserve these shelters online for a small fee. In fact, if you visit the Park page on the Broward County website, you can see a photo of each shelter along with dimensions and amenities.
