ArtsPark at Young Circle


1 Young Circle
The ArtsPark at Young Circle offers a wide array of visual and performing arts-themed educational, recreational, and entertainment activities for all ages. Millennium Springs, created by Japanese artist Ritsuko Taho, is a creative water feature and environmental sculpture that interprets the life energy of a Baobab tree along with the dreams of the City’s founder, Joseph Young. Fulfilling the dreams of many youngsters, the children’s playground, its innovative equipment, and an interactive water fountain are consistently the busiest attraction. Visitors are also amused and inspired by Romero Britto’s Butterfly sculpture located nearby. A typical week’s program of activities can include 100 hours of demonstrations offered by working artists in the Visual Arts Pavilion where glass blowing, jewelry making, and sculpturing take place. Music is the mainstay of entertainment at the ArtsPark. With a concert scheduled for the third Thursday evening of every month plus festivals and special events, the amphitheater offers blues, big band, country, classical, salsa, and more. The ArtsPark also offers more than 25 hours of fitness and art classes and 35 hours during which outstanding art can be viewed in the exhibition gallery. This project is funded in part by Broward County through the Broward County Board of County Commissioners with proceeds from the 2000 Broward County Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond Issue.
