From the very beginning, water has shaped the the world we call home. The New River served the natives as the area's first "highway"; the Intracoastal Waterway linked us to the rest of the state and country; and Port Everglades connects us to the world of commerce and travel. As the Venice of America, Fort Lauderdale is home to hundreds of miles of canals and inland waterways. Our world famous beach has drawn tourists to our shores for decades.
Victoria Park sits in the middle of Fort Lauderdale's watery world, offering you many nearby opportunities to sail, cruise, paddle, swim.... or simply take a quiet walk along the water's edge.
