Even Dogs Enjoy Living in Weston Florida

Dogs doing what they do best.

Yappie Hour Events and Barkham Park

I found an interesting article at the Weston Gazette about an event at Hyatt Regency Bonaventure for Dogs and their owners. It takes place every Thursday from 5:00PM to 7:00PM at the Hotel’s Cabanna .
Puppies get to enjoy appetizers created by Executive Chef Bob Axenfeld and ALL YOU CAN DRINK Water!

For a couple of years now Weston’s dog-owners can take their loved pets to Markham Park for networking purposes at the Barkham Park.

I don’t have Dogs and obviously I am not one; but I guess if I were to have or be a dog I would love to live in Weston as much as I do.

Biking in Weston Florida

CRADLE MOUNTAIN, AUSTRALIA - NOVEMBER 17:  Mar...

Weston is a Biker’s Paradise!

In Weston all main streets have biking lanes and drivers in general are very aware of the numbers of bikers that share the streets with them. It is not unusual to run across a pack of bikers from the Weston Flyers or the South Broward Wheelers. Some of the routes include a portion on State RD 84 but even though is great because there are no stops the lanes used by bikers are very narrow and cars go very fast making it riskier.

“Weston has over 46 miles of dedicated bike lanes within our City, making Weston one of the premier areas in south Florida in which to bike. Bike lanes are a portion of the roadway, which has been designated by striping and pavement markings, for the use of bicycles.  Bicyclists have the same rights as motorists and as such must obey all vehicular traffic laws.  Weston has provided an interconnected system of safe bike lanes, multipurpose paths and shaded sidewalks for pedestrian travel throughout the City.”

If you are into Mountain Biking at Markham Park you will find 11 miles of mountain bike trails for novice, intermediate and advanced bikers. You have to register the first time at the Park’s Office and wear a helmet.

I started biking about one year ago and enjoy it very much. Some times I get bored of taking the same route. I found this wonderful collection of possible bike routes that gave me ideas for my next rides

    The History of Weston at The Library Park

    At a glace, for many of us,Weston’s background might seem brief. However, looking deeper into it Weston’s  history goes way beyond its incorporation as a City in 1997

    Ten  Bronze Plaques that you will find along the Library Park walkways its Weston’s Walk Thru History .

    Library Park-Weston Fl

    Library Park-Weston Fl

    “40,000 to 250,000 years ago, the Savanna area we know Today as the City of Weston, in Broward County Florida was home to prehistoric creatures.
    Archaelogists found fossil fragments indicating the area provided sufficient plant and water resources to support animal life. Investigations have determined that Pleistocene Horse, Mastodon, Elephant and Bison roamed the grasslands and trees of the area.
    10,000 to 12,000 years ago, Fossil evidence indicates the presence of man in the eastern everglades…”

    Don’t think I will tell you the whole story…go walk and discover it for yourself. Don’t miss the wise quotes around the fountain. I live close by and when I discover the Park I realized how much we have in our City that we don’t know of.
