This green and creative outdoor space in Downtown Hollywood features a playground, a fountain, an arts pavilion, amphitheater and public artworks.
Hollywood ArtsPark at Young Circle Park sits on a spacious roundabout in Downtown Hollywood, Florida. This has always been a favorite meeting place, but it became more than just an urban park with a playground when it was transformed into a visual and performance arts space in 2007. Visit this inspiring multi-purpose park to see fun and fascinating live performances and movies or partake in festivals or workshops.
There are daily family-friendly, cultural and educational experiences and shows that encourage young and old to experiment and interact with the arts. The park’s Amphitheater hosts free weekly movies, concerts and events.
Check the Hollywood events calendar to what is on at the ArtsPark at Young Circle during your stay. See a movie, attend a Latin dancing class, watch a glass blowing demonstration in the Visual Arts Pavilion or browse the little art gallery on the east side of the park.
For some downtime, drape a picnic blanket on the spacious lawns or find a seat by the eye-shaped Millennium Springs fountain, which was co-designed by the Japanese artist Ritsuko Taho. Striped walkways connect the fountain with a large boab tree, the symbolic energy source for the fountain’s pumping water jets.The kids will love the splash pad on a hot day.
There are often craft beer, music or theater festivals on the weekends and food trucks on Monday nights. Mingle with the Hollywood locals during these festive occasions. Don’t miss the Hot Dog Festival if you are visiting around the 1st of July, because it’s everyone’s favorite. Each December, a huge Christmas tree and atmospheric lighting make the park look dazzling for the festive season.
