Overview: Sawgrass Sanctuary is a 20-acre park and learning center. The facility preserves and protects the City's ecological heritage, but also offers a wide variety of family-friendly amenities. It is for these reasons that it is home to the City's annual Earth Day Festival and newly added Woofstock Festival.
The park earned Sunrise a prestigious "America's Crown Communities" award from American City & County magazine, and was featured on the cover of the publication's December 2002 issue.
Sawgrass Sanctuary features an observation platform, a fishing pier and fishing bank, a 200-foot boardwalk, a .64 mile walking path, and interpretive displays identifying the park's four dominant native ecosystems. Additional amenities include two picnic pavilions, a concert platform and restrooms.
