I used to love canoeing on the Loxahatchee River. But the vendor retired and park did not get a new vendor yet. I was extremely disappointed. There is no point going there without a canoe rental place. The park management screwed that up.

We come here often mainly for hiking around the park with the kids. We rented the canoe once and had a blast!! Spend the day and pack a picnic whether you're hiking, biking, riding your horse or canoeing. Beautiful park.
