Golf Course

The Greynolds Golf Course provides a 3,100-yard challenging layout. This par-36 course, designed by Mark Mahannah in 1964, is one of the county's most popular nine-hole designs for all levels of play. The course offers electric carts, reasonable green fees, club rentals and a snack bar.

From Rock Quarry to Park Oasis

This 233-acre park was transformed in the early 1930's from a rock quarry to a beautiful urban park. Today, it has a relatively intact hardwood hammock and mangrove forest. This well preserved nature area was once home to the Tequesta Indians and, later, Seminole Indians and now eco-tours are offered of the rookery, mangrove boardwalk, observation mound, paved path and historical boathouse. There are rentals available to explore including canoes, kayaks and paddle boats and volleyball courts.
