Tons of open space, a running track free for public use, exercise equipment, playgrounds for the kids, a pond with paddleboats, ample free parking, and seasonal events at the equestrian arena. I ran here almost daily from my house in South Miami.

We think park is spectacular but dampened with concession stand. Paying 16.00 for 1 hamburger and 2 coffees kinda costly. However lady was very pleasant Maybe we are out of touch with prices but seemed very high??

This park has everything you could want, and it's free. You can enter from Bird Road or Miller Road. There are lakes (NO SWIMMING), a huge playground, tennis courts, bike path, basketball courts, baseball diamond, wonderful pavillions, wonderful picnic tables, walking path, and plenty of SHADE. It's all good. There is also an AMAZING police memorial here; be sure and... More

So many activities to do in this open area!! Practice sports, do birthdays parties and much more. Near any place in Miami, easy access from palmetto expressway and even a lake to do a romantic canoe trip.

Tropical Park is not only one of the largest (if not the largest) free park in Dade County, but also one of the best. Parking is Free as well. This park has it all: tennis and basketball courts, football and soccer fields, lots of green space for activities, jogging trails, beautiful lakes, an Equestrian center, picnic shelters, and lots more....

This is an amazing park to have meetings and parties with family and/or friends. We enjoy every time we visited it with large group of friends. You will always find a spot. You can run freely and deeply breathe and you will feel mind free, nature activities are always better than indoors. Actually I think this should be a must... More

This is a community park but it is great, it's huge and much to do. When my kids were young we celebrated many of their birthday parties here. You can rent a pavilion or grab a table under some of the many shaded areas. You can rent paddle boats, play baseball, go for hikes. They also have a small dog... More

I love all parks, but this one is on the top list. It offers so much space for any outdoor event you wish to do. Running, riding bicycle with the family, picnic areas, fishing, even boat padding. The only negative is you can't swim in the lakes. Other than that, it is a nice place to spend the afternoon. And... More
