On Saturday, September 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Sunrise will celebrate the grand opening of two new neighborhood passive parks, Oak Hammock Park and Cypress Preserve Park.
Each park has been designed with sustainability and energy conservation in mind, and utilizes solar lighting and recyclable/recycled materials to the greatest extent possible. The parks also preserve existing wetland areas and enhance existing vegetation with native landscaping.
Oak Hammock Park (9220 NW 44th Street, Sunrise – on the south side of NW 44th Street, west of N. Pine Island Road) features a playground, a chess patio, three small pavilions, a walking/biking path, a boardwalk surrounding a bird habitat, and restroom facilities.
Cypress Preserve Park (9020 NW 38th Street, Sunrise – at the northeast corner of West Oakland Park Boulevard and NW 90th Terrace) includes a children’s sprayground/splash pad, a nine-hole disc golf course, three small pavilions, a walking/biking path with nine fitness stations, and restroom facilities.
Residents are invited to take a first look at these unique and eco-friendly facilities and partake in a free giveaway segment.
