Quiet Waters Park is a 430-acre (1.7 km2) Broward County Park in Deerfield Beach, Florida.[1] Quiet Waters Park is known locally for its annual Renaissance Festival[2] and Ski Rixen cable water skiing system.[3] Ski Rixen is one of 79 cable water ski attractions in the world, and the only wakeboard and water ski resort in South Florida. Quiet Waters also features a man-made beach, a skate park, campgrounds, fishing, mountain bike trails and a children's water park that is open seasonally.[4] In October 2008, due to budget cuts, park hours were reduced. More reductions are planned.[5][6]
