Hollywood Boulevard

Hollywood Boulevard in Florida

Hollywood Boulevard is the heart of this South Florida city. Hollywood’s founder, Joseph W. Young, carefully planned the city in the early 1920s. He envisioned and ultimately created Hollywood Boulevard with three prominent circles that are still vital to the city. 

ArtsPark at Young Circle is the easternmost circle of Hollywood Boulevard. This cultural hub of the city sits between the interaction of the historic boulevard and US-1.

The bouldevard’s central circle encompasses Hollywood City Hall and the city’s library. In between this government-centered circle and ArtsPark is the thriving (and historic) downtown. 

The westernmost circle on Hollywood Boulevard is Presidential Circle. Originally Academy Circle, it is home to the eye-catching Regus office building. Rainbow Drive, which extends in an arch from the circle, anchors great neighborhoods and nearby golf courses, including the Orangebrook Golf and Country Club

Along the east side of the boulevard is the Spanish-influenced Joseph W. Young House, built in 1925 by the city’s founder. The historic mansion is now privately owned and available for rentals, mixed alongside lovely but less-mansion-sized houses.

Historic Downtown

The city’s vibrant downtown district begins east of City Hall and features an eclectic array of shopping. The area also boasts a variety of restaurants, inspired from cuisine from across the world. The city’s on-demand Sun Shuttle allows for easy transportation throughout the downtown area and includes the beaches.

The result is a robust downtown that has been drawing new residents and tourists in droves. No wonder real estate in Hollywood FL has been so in demand.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk happens on third Saturdays, 6 to 11 p.m. It includes live music throughout, live chalk art performances and a tour of the city’s downtown mural project at 6 p.m. The Artisan Market on Harrison Street is a focal point of the ArtWalk, with artists and unique and local vendors filling the sidewalks and drawing in crowds.

Speaking of murals, the downtown is painted with 30 different murals that bring color and vibrancy to the city streets. The artwork, created by an impressive array of different artists, establishes a journey of discovery through the downtown.

ArtsPark at Young Circle

Hollywood’s downtown culminates at ArtsPark, the 10-acre center of Young Circle at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and US-1. ArtsPark features a fountain near the flagpoles, a playground with a splash pad and the ArtsPark Amphitheater, shaded by the city’s unique Baobab trees.

The stage of the amphitheater hosts a variety of performances, activities and a Friday movie night. As many as 2,500 spectators can watch from the green lawn seating. Look for concerts and events on the city calendar.

Next to the amphitheater is the multipurpose dance studio and a meeting room. The dance studio hosts groups that offer classes in salsa, hula, ballet, hip hop and jazz as well as karate and kung fu.

ArtsPark also is home to Hollywood Hot Glass. The studio is regularly open for classes in glass blowing while creating space for the more than dozen artists that work from there.

The recreation and culture doesn’t stop at ArtsPark. Nearby, the Hollywood Arts and Culture Center, complete with a theater, hosts exhibits, a variety of educational programs for aspiring artists. The center is due an expansion to its facilities in Fall 2022, highlighting the city’s commitment to the arts.

Parks and the Outdoors

The city of Hollywood boasts more than three dozen parks, including a skate park, plenty of playground space for kids throughout the city, bike paths, fields and courts of all types. We love John Williams Park for its trees, Oak Lake Park for its meeting spaces and Zinkil Park for its walking trail and exercise stations. 

The Anne Kolb Nature Center at the north end of Hollywood is 1,501 acres of natural space – the largest park in Broward County. A home to coastal mangrove and endangered species, the park also includes nature trails, an observation tower, an exhibit hall and even an amphitheater.

Topeekeegee Yugnee Park is another of our favorite green spaces in the center of the city. Aside from picturesque views of the lake and trails under huge trees, the park has water playgrounds and a swim lagoon at Castaway Island. 

Yellow Green Farmers Market is an outdoor weekend shopping experience that’s unique to Hollywood. Booth after booth of vendors offer fresh food items, prepared treats and specialities alongside artisans, live music and classes every Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

For indoor recreation, the city boasts eleven community centers. Each offers their own unique programs and activities, bringing life and fun to the real estate in Hollywood FL.

The Beach and the Broadwalk

Hollywood Beach Broadwalk

Aside from the impressive access to stunning Florida beaches, Hollywood has a 2.5-mile broadwalk built right along the sand.
