Located less than a mile south of Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale Beach Park beckons to families who want to spend their beach day doing more than just lounging and swimming. At this free beachfront park, visitors have access to all sorts of facilities, including volleyball and basketball courts, outdoor showers, restrooms, a playground and a picnic area with tables and grills. Plus, the park's sands are less crowded than nearby Fort Lauderdale Beach, and lifeguards are on duty daily during daylight hours.
Overall, recent travelers enjoyed their time at this park, citing its beautiful setting and top-notch amenities as highlights. Many also appreciated the property's proximity to various shops, restaurants and hotels, such as B Ocean Resort and the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa. However, some past visitors warned that additional charges apply for select services. Expect to pay about $50 for beach chair and umbrella rentals, and $6 to $8 per vehicle for parking, depending on the time of day. Parking is limited (especially on weekends and holidays), so consider arriving early.
Fort Lauderdale Beach Park is open every day from 5 a.m. to midnight. Driving is the easiest way to get to the park, but visitors without vehicles can also use the No. 40 bus. The water taxi's No. 5 stop sits across the street as well. To learn more about the park, check out the City of Fort Lauderdale's website.
