The Governor Leroy Collins Farm Park will be unlike any other park in South Florida, and will provide an unparalleled opportunity for youth and community programs, and experiential learning about agriculture. The project site lies on 84 acres on the western edge of the Town of Davie, boarding I-75 on the west, Shotgun Road on the east, and SW 36th Street (South Post Road) on the South. The Farm Park will provide a working urban mini-farm where crops are grown and animals are raised, where children and adults learn in a hands-on environment about agricultural production from seedling to market and about the area’s agricultural history. The project strives to increase the public’s understanding of the vital role agriculture plays in our everyday survival, while making learning fun and preserving open space. The primary partners in this endeavor are the Town of Davie, Project Stable Foundation, Friends of the Davie Farm Park and the Broward County Farm Bureau.
Town of Davie Mayor Judy Paul had a dream about preserving Davie’s agricultural history for future generations. As a Town Council member in 2004 she and the Town Council set on a mission to obtain land and develop it into a facility that will service, and educate our current and future generations. It would include facilities for education, programs for special needs children and adults, research, nutritional programs, environmental programs, community gardens and a farmers market.
This dream has become a reality with
