Pembroke Pines

Play, shop and dine-in.

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.  

Shop and savor

Shops at Pembroke Gardens is shopping zen: a relaxing, beautiful open-air setting with 75+ tempting boutiques and stores, plus many choices for international cuisine and sweet treats. Feel free to bring your four-legged pal: pets are welcome too.

Grab a bargain, a bite and a blockbuster at Pembroke Lakes Mall: 150+ specialty shops,  California Pizza Kitchen and Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants; food court choices; and AMC 9 Theatre with those oh-so-comfy reserved recliners and on-site MacGuffins Bar.
