About Hugh Taylor Birch
In 1893, Hugh Taylor Birch, a Chicago attorney, came to the small town of Fort Lauderdale and purchased oceanfront property for his new home. Paying only a dollar an acre, he eventually owned a three-and-a-half mile stretch of land along the beach. Finally, in 1940 he built his final home, a 180-acre estate which he named "Terramar," meaning from land to sea. Prior to his death to save the land from encroaching developers, Birch donated his estate for use as a public park. On July 1, 1949, Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area officially opened to the public, part of the Florida state park system.

About Birch State Park
Enjoy a day at the beach, a picnic under the trees, or fishing along the Intracoastal Waterway. Canoe rentals are available in the park's freshwater lagoon for a leisurely paddle. The two-mile loop road is ideal for joggers and bicyclists. There are over 200 species on the park's bird list. Many threatened or endangered plants are among the more than 500 native and non-native species calling Birch State Park home. Ranger-guided Walks of the Coastal Hammock Trail are available 10:30 am Fridays.
