Olympic size pool with dual diving boards and a high dive. Water park for the little ones and you get in free to the park with your hotel invoice and its only a small fee to get into the pool. Well worth it.

We had stopped in the Islamorada Visitor Center located right next door and asked about places we could snorkel right off the beach and this was recommended. We were staying at Harbor Lights on Islamorada and were informed that we could bring our Islamorada motel receipt and have free admission to here during our stay. Since we were early for... More

This is the best kept secret on the Islamorada. The park has a low entrance fee and offers, fishing, large pool, soccer fields, marina, and the best small snorkeling beach in the keys. We snorkeled and saw rays, tropical fish, puffers, barracudas, large crabs,, jellyfish etc. Great way to spend several days...

We travel with our best friend (4 legged) and try to find a Dog Park wherever we travel. This is a wonderful facility -- the people of Islamorada are very fortunate! It's not our first visit - but it's so completely family friendly -- from the jogging/walking track with fitness stops, to the dog park, soccer/sports fields and the wonderful... More

What more could you ask for Founders has it all and its in the keys. The dog park is great especially when the mafia dog owners are not sitting in their circle with their noses up in the air.

This is a nice park for activities however it's too expensive if you're not a resident of Islamorada. I live 3 miles outside of Islamorada and still had to pay eight dollars, if I had kids or were using the other facilities it would be a good deal but too many rules and restrictions if you have a dog and...

It was a very nice park with a cute beach the only real type of beach we found in the keys, it also had a pool and a few other things for older children, it is worth the few dollars to get in.

It was a perfect little beach for our family. We had called and asked about a guest pass due to our condo being down the street and got one for the length of out stay. The twins (6 yrs.) are new to snorkeling so this was a good fit for us, they seen plenty sea life. No crowded at all,... More

It's a small gem in Isla Morada, very clean, beautiful clear beach...felt as private! Very safe and enjoyable for families with small children. Has fresh water showers, clean bathrooms, tiki huts, picnic tables and grilling area, a lovely playground for the young ones. My favorite part lots of greenery...palm trees n plenty of shade. Saw blue crabs, hermit crabs, beautiful... More

Never been before but the beach is lovely and is free if you are staying locally (take proof you are in a local motel). I spent a lovely few hours there. Will go again
