In July 2011, The City of Hallandale Beach adopted a Citywide Parks Master Plan in order to provide a community driven and professionally prepared roadmap to improve public recreation, program offerings, and leisure facilities throughout the community.
The goals of the Plan are to:
- Create a city-wide system of park and recreation venues that meet the needs of the residents of Hallandale Beach;
- Set Hallandale Beach as a model of cities;
- Enhance the quality of life for all residents ;
- Improve the neighborhoods; and
- Maintain and enhance the tax base.
Even further, its specific guiding objectives are to:
- Identify perceived and real community recreation needs;
- Maximize, to the greatest extent possible, the use of available recreation lands and facility resources;
- Provide for the rational and equitable distribution of recreational faculties throughout the City of Hallandale Beach and improve accessibility of said faculties; and
- Plan park and recreation investments to provide the greatest benefit for all residents of Hallandale Beach, while limiting duplication of high maintenance facilities.
Since the adoption of the Parks Master Plan, Hallandale Beach has acquired addition land and increased the number of parks to be developed.
Passage of the Citywide Parks Master Plan General Obligation Bond means we will improve, renovate and build the remaining eight parks: Bluesten Park, Ingalls Park, Golden Isles Park, Golden Isles Tennis Center, Sunset Park, Historic Village, Sunrise Park, and Chaves Lake Park. Chaves Lake Park, which is undeveloped land off NW 8th Avenue, will become the City’s first park with a lake for small boats and water activities.
