Miramar Pineland Park Nature Center

Miramar, FL

Located at University Drive near Florida Turnpike's Homestead Extension, the park offers a slash pine forest, restored wetlands, undisturbed prairie, dedicated walkways, elevated boardwalks, as well as a playground, Splash Pad, and picnic shelters. The 4,300 SF nature center features exhibition areas to highlight the historical and ecological impact of the environs, edifying student and community groups, tourists, and eco-visitors. A perimeter covered walkway and a reflective metal roof augment the building’s energy-efficient footprint. A multipurpose room, warming kitchen, restrooms, lobby, and administrative offices round out the interior elements. The space is full of light and natural features designed for intentional harmony with the surroundings. An adjacent covered outdoor area allows for public group gatherings.
