“Great place to Kayak and bike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I usually come here to do mountain bike. It has an amazing road for bikes! Like being in a real mountain!! (crazy to say this in Miami!) They made a great improvement to this park recently. And then you can cool off kayaking to the sea. Incredible natural park in the middle of the city!

“Kayaking at Oleta River State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Oleta River State Park is said to be Florida’s largest urban park The park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails. At the north end of the park there are shaded mangrove trails. Kayakers can paddle the river to explore the mangroves and also paddle out into the bay. Picnic tables and grills are available. For overnight visits, the park has rustic, air-conditioned cabins.

“Great park full of activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My family loves Oleta River State Park! There is so much to do there. Its great for bike riders as it has several bike paths with different levels of difficulty, from paved paths to daunting dirt traks with jumps. There are bbq areas, canoe rentals, a fishing pier and nice calm beach. Don't forget to bring your helmet as you will not be allowed to ride if you are not wearing one.

“Excellent for tours during the week.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Me and my family love this park! Quiet, nice for a nap, read a book or simply contemplate nature.

But beware! On weekends, especially in summer, is terrible. Many people, much noise, too much dirt.

“Awesome little getaway...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you like biking, kayaking or just nature, this is the place. There is even a beach for your enjoyment. I would suggest the beach during the weekdays. On weekends, the locals from the area tend to flop here. There is a $2 charge per car, but if you partake in the activities you will be fine.
