Especially in Margate, Coconut, and Deerfield Beach areas close to the Turnpike.

I don't like treadmills nor running on the sidewalks to breathe in dirt and exhaust gas. Went to Tradewinds park and feel very disappointed. Quietwaters park seems similar. Why don't they think that if they put sidewalks or trails stupid palms trees or grass don't provide any shade??

Can any runners give me any suggestions about outdoor running without too much exposure to the sun? How come that they don't have a greenway system in the urban area? Poor South Florida is so behind about things!!!

I can't recall the names, because I used to live in Hollywood, but I developed the Land Preservation program of Broward County and I remember some of the best lands were in Coral Springs and Coconut Creek. I would check the Broward Co. Parks and Recreation site as well as the cities' sites. They are quite advanced when it comes to trails and I am sure you can find them directly on their sites. If you call the County Parks and Rec dept., I am sure you will find someone who is willing to give you advice: they are very friendly and professional.

Thanks a lot. Coconut Creek has some nice parks but it is way too bad that many of the running trails are not shaded. I'm considering leaving South Florida if possible. Just very disappointed with things here.

Coconut Creek, Parkland and Coral Springs have a bunch of parks that are nice for jogging. Have you tried Quiet Waters, or even Sugar Sand Park in Boca?
