Oakland Park, Florida

The City of Oakland Park sits approximately 20 minutes north of Port Everglades and Ft. Lauderdale International Airport.  This city is about fun with friends and neighbors!

Arguably the centerpiece of activity is Jaco Pastorius Park, named for the famous American jazz bass guitarist.  Many events are held here including Octoberfest, the Polynesian Cultural Festival, Latin Fest, Halloween Bash and many more. 

Located about a half an hour southwest of Port Everglades and Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, the cities of Miramar and West Park are focused on family fun.  There is an abundance of activities available that are suitable for every member of your family.

One of the featured attractions in Miramar is the Miramar Regional Park.  It has amenities galore!  You can play a number of sports including volleyball, baseball, cricket, soccer, and football.  You can enjoy swimming and a kiddie splash area at the Aquatic Complex or take in a concert at the open-air Pavilion.  In addition, you can enjoy standard park activities such as picnics, playgrounds and bike rides. 

Oakland Park is also home to a more unusual form of expression.  Garman Sculpture Works helps families, friends and other loved ones immortalize their bond through artistic sculptures of them joining hands.

Another fairly famous resident of the City of Oakland Park is Funky Buddha Brewery.  From humble beginnings in 2007 to opening their current large facility in 2013, this brewery has taken the craft beer industry by storm.  Some of their brews can be found in stores all over the southeast as well as other locations in the United States.

For more outdoor adventure go to Easterlin Park.  There you can indulge in walking nature trails, camping, basketball, volleyball, or even Frisbee golf.

All these locations are accessibility-friendly and more information about each location can be found on their websites.
