For a fun, unique and relatively inexpensive activity in north Broward, hop aboard a little railroad. The teeny train runs on tracks around a pond at Tradewinds Park.
Train rides offered third weekends
Functioning model locomotives offer rides 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. third full weekends of each month, weather permitting. It's a good idea to phone to verify the trains are running the day you want to go.
Tradewinds & Atlantic Railroad runs the trains. Kids and adults enjoy it.
“It’s fun to see all the kids and them smile and wave to you as you pull into the station,” says Mike, president of Tradewinds and Atlantic Railroad.
Fees are $1.50 for train rides. Weekend entry fee for Tradewinds Park is $1.50 for ages 6 and older.
Tradewinds Park is at 3600 W. Sample Road, Coconut Creek.
For information, phone the park at 954-357-8870 or 954-494-6877 for the train rides.
