Park & Ocean at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

Park & Ocean, spectacularly located in Fort Lauderdale’s Hugh Taylor Birch State Park (3109 E. Sunrise Boulevard). Aptly named Park & Ocean, the restaurant & garden sits amid a shady grove on the Southeast side of Birch Park along A1A featuring oceanfront seating and views. Our Caribbean & Southern influenced menu offers an eclectic mix of "farm to table" items. We created several social seating areas to create a unique experience for 2 - 2,000 guests to sit back and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Our own in-house brewery named Shady Brewing offers specialty beers featuring the finest fruits that Florida has to offer, in-house cold brewed coffee, & Rustic Ice tea on tap. So no matter if your day consists of a day at the beach or a walk in the park, or just a place to chill, Park & Ocean is your spot. There are a wide variety of activities you can do at the park. Including renting kayaks, canoes, waverunners, segways, SUP paddleboards and guided tours.
