This park is on approximately 2.9 acres along the north side of Holmberg Road and immediately east of the covered bridge. The area was overrun by invasive exotic vegetation not native to Florida that hinders healthy growth of native species of trees and foliage. The first phase of the expansion of Covered Bridge Park took place in October 2019 and included removing those invasive species from the area. During that process, living native trees were left and only dead or invasive vegetation was removed.
In this area that was previously thick wooded brush, there are now walkways, a connection with the covered bridge, a connection with the trail to Six Acre Wood Park, areas for friends to gather, nature areas, manicured open spaces, and a gated parking area that is locked when the park is closed. The parking lot serves Covered Bridge Park and, for the first time, provides parking that can be used for visitors to access the pathway that connects to Six Acre Wood Park.
The City of Parkland (City) had a conceptual design for the park expansion which evolved as the City received feedback from residents. The park does not have bathrooms or lights and is open only sunrise to sunset. Construction of the Covered Bridge Park expansion was completed in August 2022.
