The Peaceful Ridge Trail is a local trail that connects the neighborhoods along SW 26th Street and Hiatus Road to the I-595 corridor. There are plans to expand its linkages to other trails as development takes place to the south along Hiatus Road and these will eventually connect the northern neighborhoods to the Robbins Lodge Park.
At the corner of Hiatus Road and 26th Street is the former Math Igler Groves site where the Town is currently developing a neighborhood park. The recreational trails will have historical sign markers along the way.
If you head north and then east, the Trail travels along the Interstate 595 corridor and links up to Fox Trail Elementary and Indian Ridge Middle Schools at the corner of SW 100th Avenue and I-595. The corner is also the location of Davie’s Police and Fire Department Complex. The Police Department building includes a large community meeting room to accommodate various events throughout the year.
Traveling a short distance to the south along the sidewalk on Nob Hill Road will take you to Bergeron Park, a small neighborhood park named after Dorothy and Percy Bergeron, early settlers in the Town.
The Peaceful Ridge Trail will also provide linkages to the future County Greenways Trail system which will connect Davie through the Flamingo Road or Hiatus Road corridors.
Robbins Lodge & Preserve
The entrance to this preserve lies about one-half mile north of Orange Drive on Hiatus Road. It consists of 160 acres of pasture, equestrian trails, hardwood hammocks, pavilions, an equestrian facility, gazebo, and the original house that can be rented for special events.
The bells of Easter Hill mark the location where the Wray, Chaplin and Wood families who pioneered this area, celebrated Easter sunrise services in the 1960’s. That site now includes a gazebo for weddings and Sunday concerts in the Park.
