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!

This is a great park to see a typical beach in the keys. All types of attractions here and the entrance is $8 per adult. Children would love it here

Beautiful park with a breathtaking beach area. We stopped here for the craft fair. There was live music, great food and fun artisan booths. Great find.

We were there for the Island Fest at this Islamorada gem. The beach was used for swimming, sandcastle building, homemade boat races, and a small bandstand for the local performers. It was great for the Fest. But on a daily basis, it offers a nice swimming pool, marina, baseball fields, picnic tables, and plenty of open spaces for kids to... More

What an excellent find in Islamorada! I felt it was a little pricey to get in, $8 per person; however, it is an all day pass. You can come and go as you like. Once we spent the day there, it was well worth the money! There is an excellent beach for young kids and adults to wade, swim or... More
