456-acre Shingle Creek Regional Park is a lovely oasis on Shingle Creek, at the headwaters of the Everglades. In addition to part of the Shingle Creek Regional Trail, the park has a boat and canoe/kayak launch, outfitter, fishing dock, hiking trails, picnicking, play area, and restrooms. Several old homes from the historic Shingle Creek community are within the park, and a Pioneer Village. The creek is named after the cypress trees that lined the bank in the late 19th century, which were used to make wood shingles.
