Snyder Park is a natural destination designed for connection and empowerment. Experience a diversity of ways to live sustainably and embody wellness while building community with nature and neighbors.
Located in the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Snyder Park invites city dwellers to get to know the ecosystem and wild plants native to the area. Heal the Planet leads monthly free, guided nature tours through the tropical hardwood hammocks of the park, as well as workshops and classes for students of all ages in the park’s Butterfly Garden, Edible Landscape Garden, and Tropical Food Forest. Snyder Park also has playgrounds shaded by live oak trees, sand volleyball courts, disc golf, bike trails, and is most famous for its bark park and big, blue lake for dogs to swim in.
