Pembroke Pines was ranked as one of Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” for several reasons – and most of those reasons make it a great place to visit too! There’s something for all visitors: fun-loving groups, romantic dates and “me-time” solo escapes.
A step beyond ordinary parks
C.B. Smith Park packs more fun than you can fit into one day: batting cages, driving range, multiple tennis courts, squash, pickle ball, fitness facility, and picturesque trails to explore by foot or bike. Rentable pavilions with BBQ grills are reasonably priced; near the lake; and nicely spaced out, with plenty of room to house bounce houses and all the relatives.
Make a big splash at Paradise Cove Water Park, right inside C.B. Smith Park (separate fee). The Aquatics complex includes a large pool, two interactive water playgrounds, lazy river tube ride and two waterslides.
Extend your fun: the park’s campgrounds are large, clean, with RV hookups, Wi-Fi, fishing pier, laundry facilities and more.
Catch a Chill
Try something different for your group’s birthday or reunion celebration: Pines Ice Arena has convenient open public skating times with classes for first-timers to advanced.
