Fun in Weston

Many Weston neighborhoods provide scenic walkways along streets, with tree-lined sidewalks frequently populated by joggers, bikers and stroller-pushing parents. Several parks are provided for various types of fun and relaxation, from passive Peace Mound Park at Weston and Indian Trace roads — with a path-lined lake, benches, pavilions and playground, gentle hills and towering trees — to Tequesta Trace Park, dedicated to sports with baseball, softball, soccer and football fields, plus a roller rink and children’s playground, also on Indian Trace.

Heron Park, next to Country Isles Elementary, is devoted primarily to sports activities, while Village Park at Arvida Parkway and Country Isles Road is a playground.  Oscar Wind Park onPE00512_.WMF (6786 bytes) New River Circle in nearby Sunrise offers playground, ballfields and volleyball courts, while Markham Park, in nearby Sunrise at State Road 84 and Weston Road, is a full-scale county park with wilderness camping area, pools, and playgrounds. Favorite activities at Markham include the Target Range, Fox Observatory, and an area dedicated to model plane enthusiasts. There are also two boat ramps popular with Everglades fisherfolk, and jet skiers.


Several other neighborhoods boast their own small parks as well, including Windmill Ranches and Emerald Estates, the newly developed parcel south of Arvida Parkway. Gator Run Elementary and Eagle Point Elementary both have neighborhood sports parks as well.


Weston Regional Park is now in full swing, offering several baseball fields, hockey rinks and basketball courts as well as soccer and football fields. The park is the new home to the



West Broward YMCA. The soccer fields are home to the Weston Soccer Club (http://www.westonsoccer.net/)  A concession stand and tot lot provide everything but shade at this sports park on the edge of the Everglades at 20200 Saddle Club Road.

The local movie theater, Weston8 is a great little theater to see new releases, also nearby is: the 20-screen Muvico to the south in Davie at Sheridan and I75, and another mega-theater just northeast of Weston at Sawgrass Mills Mall. A $5 theater can be found about five miles east at Nob Hill Road and State Road 84.

Weston residents can join the Athletic Club for fitness facilities, located at the Weston Community Center which also offers interesting classes in a variety of subjects ranging from drama to computers, plus pool, tennis courts, and band shell.   A bit northwest finds The Bonaventure Town Center, which offers pools, indoor skating rink, fitness center, racquetball and tennis courts plus meeting rooms. Cliff Drysdale’s Weston Tennis Center can be found at Bonaventure Boulevard and Racquet Club Road.
