As a mother of three active kids, I can say I truly enjoy most of the parks in the area. The City of Coral Springs offers great park facilities. The City offers great sports programs year round so you will always see a lot of activity going on. The main parks that come to my mind are Cypress Park, Mullins Park and the North Community Park, with major futbol/baseball/soccer fields, tennis courts, running paths. There are several other neighborhood parks. The Betti Stradling park, on Wiles Road, has been renovated recently. My kids call it the 'Castle Park' because of all the structures the kids can climb and walk on. The playground area is fenced and has a special 'anti-shock' flooring. In that park there is a skating area for the daring teens and also a sand volleyball court. The running path is special to me, that's where I learned how to bike - when I was 30 years old! I haven't stopped pedaling ever since. The open field is also great to fly kites or simply play with the kids. There are 3 public water parks in Coral Springs. The Aquatic Center with its olympic size pool, home to the most important swimming events in the region. It is an incredible facility and swimmers from around the world come to train here with coach Michael Lohberg. It also has a full gym, a diving well and two smaller pools where kids all ages learn how to swim and sometimes become serious competitors. The other two parks are Mullins Park and Cypress Park. Cypress Park has a water slide and a kiddie playground and is very popular during Summer time. I just remembered that Cypress Park also has a boardwalk where you can really appreciate nature. That's also where Halloween festivities take place. In the City of Coral Springs there is an area in the West side of town, by Sawgrass Expressway (the highway along The Everglades national park), called Sportsplex. Next to each other are the Aquatic Complex, The Tennis Complex, The Dog Park and Incredible Ice (for the ice skating and hockey lovers). Across the street is the new Nature and Wildlife Center facility. Fourth of July celebrations take place at the Sportsplex and that's when you get to celebrate the diversity and beauty of this town.

The dog park in Coral Springs is not very good, it's not maintained very well and there are a lot of people that have dogs that are dominant/aggressive and don't seem to recognize that this type of dog is not appropriate for a dog park. There's a nicer dog park in Coconut Creek (Windmill Park) as well as one further away in Ft. Lauderdale (Snyder Park). Even though it's more a drive for me I feel more comfortable taking my dog to these other dog parks.

the city is superb on mainting the parks or 're-doing them. There is a brand new Dog Park within the heart of the city.

There are many parks and recreational areas in and near Coral Springs. There is an ice rink for adults and children. Dog parks and running paths are easy to find in this community of waterways, golfcourses and families.
