Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park

Formerly known as John U. Lloyd Beach State Park

On July 1, 2016, this park was renamed Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park in honor of two individuals who led efforts to change the “colored beach” into a state park in 1973 and create appropriate access to that beach for residents.

Perfect for a day at the beach or a family picnic, this park provides an abundance of recreational activities. Surf fishing, canoeing, swimming, nature study, boating and picnicking will keep the whole family busy. For those interested in South Florida's underwater beauty, this park has one of the easiest and most interesting shore dives in the area. The park has two boat ramps with easy access to the ocean through the Port Everglades Inlet, which will please those who prefer to fish in open water. The mangrove-lined waterway is a scenic place to canoe, observe bird life and take photographs. Grab a bite to eat at the Whiskey Creek Hideout. Located off A1A in the City of Hollywood
