Dania Beach is the first and oldest city in Broward County, Florida. Over the years, it has begun to experience many of the challenges that cities all along Florida’s east coast have faced. Robert Baldwin, the city manager of Dania Beach, is responsible for the administration of the city. Under his leadership, many reforms and renovations are underway.
Dania Beach’s oceanfront is adjacent to an area state park. Therefore, rather than the commercialized ocean fronts of nearby towns, Dania Beach has the benefit of offering beach-goers a more natural environment. To capitalize on these benefits–and in part due to the work of Robert Baldwin and the Office of the City Manager–renovations have been progressing along the oceanfront.
Dania’s Ocean Park offers convenient parking, two restaurants, and a popular fishing pier that is open to the public. New chickee huts and bathrooms have been added to the park. In addition, the 120-slip Dania Beach Marina located across the street has undergone renovations and improvements. Slips within the marina are available for transient, monthly, and annual rental.
