“Another great park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Miami always amazes me when you consider all the lovely parks in the area. For a county that is so conjested with traffic, shopping centers, etc, it is always a delight to find a place of natural beauty.
Just hope local officials don't find a way to ruin it.

“An Everglades style park in the middle of Miamitropolis.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This has been picked as one of Florida's top parks. They have log cabins to rent with BBQ pits. Common bathhouse. Bike trails and kayak rentals. Miles of trails.
Florida the way it used to be. All at the top of Biscayne Bay . Do not miss this park on your visit to Miami.

“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!

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.
