At 157 acres, this site is one of the largest natural areas managed by Broward County Parks and Recreation. As recently as a century ago this elevated oak hammock was part of a series of islands surrounded by Everglades marshes. Long Key encompasses some of the most significant archaeological, historical, and ecological resources in the county, as the area was inhabited by the ancient Tequestas and the more modern Seminoles. Everglades Theater: This 599-square-foot theater shows an approximately 12-minute video, Long Key: An Island in the Everglades. Capacity 50. Discovery Room: A 902-square-foot classroom featuring hands-on investigations of Everglades habitats and animal residents. Programs for school and camp groups available by reservation. Capacity 40-70. Nature Trail: An approximately half-mile trail that winds through the oak hammock. Naturalist-led walks are available, as well as walks around the restored wetlands and to the Baez House.
