We have great news for all you water lovers out there: For the first time ever, boaters can access Hugh Taylor Birch State Park from the Intracoastal Waterway.

On June 14, the park hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new 230-foot floating public boat dock and boating pavilion.

The project has been five years in the making, and is a partnership between the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Florida Inland Navigation District, the Broward County Commission’s Broward Boating Improvement Program, the staff of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and Friends of Birch State Park.

The new boat dock and pavilion is a part of the “Bring Birch Back!” campaign, which was started in 2013 to help revitalize the park.

Also a part of the project, the park’s 1.2-mile, 100-year-old seawall was raised 18 inches to protect it from rising sea levels.
