Broward County Greenway Trails

Broward County, FL

CTA was the Landscape Architectural sub-consultant for the landscape architectural design of five important greenways and/or trails in Broward County. These were the C-14 Canal/Cypress Creek Greenway, New River/SR 84 Greenway, Flamingo Road Trail, Dixie Highway/FEC Trail and the Griffin/Orange Drive Greenway. These greenways and trails comprise approximately 70 miles of a unique greenway system for Broward County. Since these greenways cross numerous municipalities' boundaries, road rights-of-ways and portions are to be constructed with the SFWMD canal rights-of-way, the approval and permitting of these greenways is ongoing and extensive. The landscape design for all the greenways heavily utilized drought-tolerant, native plant material and was in conformance with the Broward County Naturescape principles and the SFWMD Xeriscape guidelines. The design provides a naturalistic setting that provides shade and excitement along these corridors.
