I used to love canoeing on the Loxahatchee River. But the vendor retired and park did not get a new vendor yet. I was extremely disappointed. There is no point going there without a canoe rental place. The park management screwed that up.

Love the park. Used to take my bike to the park. Only way to go. Take a bit of lunch and sit under one of the huts and think about what happened 100 years ago. Battles with soldiers, indians and run away slaves. Great place...More

Not in park, but down Indian Town road there is a bike shop that will rent. Can't think of the bike's shop name but its just a short ride. You'll need bike rack on your car.
