We came here during Islamorada's annual Island Fest. Great time! Car show, music, food, local vendors. They had sand castle building on the beach, sand art, and games going on. The area was pretty and clean.

We visited Founders Park during spring break. In addition to a beach, the Islamorada city pool is on the property. Our kids enjoyed the splash pad & diving boards. Since the local kids were in school, we had the place to our selves! It was very clean and well maintained. Bring some sand toys if you plan on spending a... More

Really a wonderful asset for the residents; if you are renting for a... More

We were fortunate to be visiting Islamorada during the two day Spring festival taking place at Founders park. This was a great occasion with lots of vintage cars on display, stalls, activities on the beach, live bands and a general "feel good" factor. We had a walk around the parts of the park not being used for the festival and... More

There was a little community festival happening when we arrived. It was very nice and right next to the water.

Great park! There is a cost for this beach / park if you are not an area resident. The water is the prefect depth...my 5 year old could walk all the way out to the ropes and the water came up to her chin. Lots of famalies, seniors and tourist at this spot. There are showers, a place to picnic... More

Nice park area to stroll around. Small but pleasant beach but you do have to pay to use it if you're not a local resident.

My husband is a lap swimmer. If we didn't know that Islamorada had this Olympic Training Pool, we wouldn't have stayed there. There is very poor ocean or gulf swimming in the Keys and only a handful of pools for laps. We will be back.
