Event to celebrate new four-waterslide complex at C.B. Smith Park

The Broward County Board of County Commissioners and the Parks and Recreation Division invite the public to a Paradise Pipeline Party, to celebrate the success of the new four-waterslide complex Paradise Pipeline at Paradise Cove, the water park at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines. The ceremony will be at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 26.

Paradise Pipeline opened to the public at the start of the 2014 aquatics season on March 21 and was an immediate hit, attracting twice the number of people the week of spring break compared with the same time period two years ago. (The complex was still under construction during the 2013 aquatics season.)

The public is invited to attend a stakeholder meeting to learn more about the vision for the future expansion of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center on Tuesday, April 22, beginning at 6 p.m. in Rooms 220-221 at the Convention Center, 1950 Eisenhower Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.

This is an opportunity to provide feedback about the master plan now being considered by the Board of County Commissioners. The meeting seeks public input to help determine the most preferred approach for the development of a new convention center hotel and the expansion of the current convention center facility.
