Nice park

Although I was only there for the U of Miami dolphin tournament and did not use the pool, it was a well kept facility with lots to do. Very nice gate attendants.

Been there a few times, they hold many fair type stuff there. There is a dog park which is just basically dead grass and not much shade. If it was cheaper for the general public...I'd give it a higher score, but i think they wanted 12 bucks for 3 people. John Pennycamp is way better if you are willing to... More

We found this park very nice. The beach was small but clean and the people we met there told us stories about the island. It was a real treat to hang out and relax in the sun at a real beach, we also were lucky enough to be there the weekend of the Bay Jam so we went back for... More

We actually spent very little time at this park but enjoyed driving through and checking it out. As you can imagine, it had lots of outside activities and the people there seemed to be enjoying themselves. There were several large boats moored there that the owners had decorated their area with beautiful flower pots to make it seem like home.

As travelers to the Keys for the first time we were excited to find a local festival to attend. Didn't do the taste of the Island, thought was pricy for a "taste" but enjoyed the sand sculptures and vendors. Made some purchased from the talented artists!
