Who says there are no
mountains in South Florida?

The normally quiet and beautiful
Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park
has undergone a radical transformation!
Formerly known as John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, it also includes Whiskey Creek – a very popular paddling spot. The Park is the last remaining undeveloped beach and quite possibly the nicest natural place in all of Broward County.
With the Grand Opening of Mount Dania, Florida State Park planners
have revealed a new strategy designed to combat beach erosion!
The planners have announced that it is estimated that leaving the sand in this form will allow it to last up to 5x longer than if it was distributed over the beach. The sand has been trucked in from large sand deposit pits near Lake Okeechobee, and about 22,222 loads were needed to build this monumental project.
Additionally, some new beach activities will be allowed. These include the kayak slide, sand rolling, sand boarding, uphill kiting and downhill sand ski racing, among others. However once a beach umbrella has been planted at the top, that visitor shall be allowed to claim the mountain for one hour!
So hurry on over to Dania Beach – today is your first chance to claim your mountain!
