The Cypress Creek Greenway connects from the edge of the Everglades at Tamarac to beachside at Pompano Beach. The western section runs along the Cypress Creek Canal, while the eastern section follows a mostly roadside route. Virtually no shade, so plan accordingly. (Map link and photos below.)

From Tephford Park (at SR 869 in Tamarac) the greenway runs about 7 miles along the Cypress Creek Canal to Lyons Road in Coconut Creek. In this section, Tephford Park and Tamarac Veterans Park offer parking, restrooms and other amenities. At Lyons Road, parking is at the Fern Forest Nature Center, a short ride out to the trail.
The trail continues along Lyons Road and follows a mostly roadside route another 10 miles to the beach, but we haven't visited that section yet.
