Snyder Park is home to a Tropical Hardwood Hammock ecosystem, which includes many species of native plants and wildlife, such as raccoons, opossums, foxes and birds. And now, Snyder Park is also home to a flourishing butterfly garden filled with a variety of host and nectar plants, such as milkweed, dill, and pentas. Through the generosity of the National Recreation and Park Association’s Green Parks – Green Kids program, only five agencies across the country, one of which is Fort Lauderdale, received grants to increase the number of children participating in regular, outdoor environmental education programs. Studies show that our children are spending approximately seven and a half hours daily using electronic media and less time outdoors. Access to green space and parks stimulates outdoor play and the discovery of our natural environment as well as ignites imaginative play and a sense of adventure for children.
The Snyder Park Butterfly Garden and educational program was made possible through key partnerships with the National Recreation and Parks Association, Kids Ecology Corps, and Flamingo Road Nursery. These partnerships have provided the City of Fort Lauderdale with the necessary labor, materials and funds to create the picturesque butterfly garden as well as the butterfly and moth educational program.
If you are seeking the most unique and challenging disc golf course in all of South Florida or perhaps just an excuse for a casual walk in the park then look no further than the Snyder Park Disc Golf Course. Literally, a disc throw away from the Fort Lauderdale Airport this Par 68 (front 34 / back 34) will challenge every type of disc golf enthusiast from the introduction player (red tee pads), to the intermediate player (white tee pads) on up to the advance and seasoned player (blue tee pads).
The course was designed, implemented and constructed to capture and enhance all of the beautiful elements within the 93 acre park. It magnifies the beautiful canopy of Snyder Park. The golf course has it all such as long open holes and narrow wooded holes, as well as dog lefts and rights throughout. Furthermore, the course plays beside water, over water and even does have ascending and descending elevations, which is not typical for South Florida. Also, the course does boast South Florida’s only Par 5s for disc golf.
Look to the kiosk / disc return box at the start of Basket 1 for up to date information including leagues, events, and any other pertinent information as it corresponds to the course. The 18-hole disc golf course is open daily 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Parking fees apply on weekends and holidays. Come on out and play!
