Convenient place to launch your boat

We occasionally stay on Islamorada and use this park to launch our boat. Also decent beach to swim at.

Went for sunset one evening. The water was very clear, sand was pretty rocky, though. One of the few actual beaches in the area, if you're staying around Islamorada, and just want a quick beach trip, definitely worth it, just don't expect a mainland-type beach.

This park and its beach are a great destination if you are a family with young children. The beach is somewhat on the small side, but has great sand and the water is nice and shallow for young kids to enjoy. These beaches are not very common on the upper Keys. Also, while there is a fee to enter the... More

We went here as a family two of the days that we were in Islamorada. One of the days was a fun day of swimming in the pool, jumping off the high diving board, and snorkeling in the ocean. My only complaint is that there were tons of jelly fish in the ocean. I know that there is nothing anybody... More

A wonderful hidden gem. We spent the day at the pool. Our hotel had a deal where we did not have to pay to get into park. It was a windy day so we skipped the sand and enjoyed a quiet day at the pool. Cheap and easy, clean and fun.

We had a good time at both the beach and pool. Kids loved the high and low diving boards. Great place to relax.

The park is pretty and well maintained. It has a nice marina, and the swimming pool is terrific for getting a good workout. When we stayed Islamorada a couple of years ago, we use it a lot. We were passing through this year and decided to visit the park since we like it so much before. But at $8 per... More

Go ahead and look for another boat ramp, you won't find a better one. Great people to deal with a excellent clean dockage. BBQ's at slips and a great pool as well.

We love our community park. It is also the only doggie park! It is very well maintained, always clean. The pool does have a fee, but it is huge and the kids love the diving boards and splash pad. They also offer swim lessons, ask for Mrs Colleen! We love the small town feel to it!
