Lots of trails. Even had Hobbie kayaks and kite surfing for rent. Some areas allowed grilling and great for BBQ under a tree with the ocean view. There was a wedding at the the natural ocean pool. Beautiful place to go if you don't want to go in the water, not south beach ocean but white nice sand for tanning.

Perfect to bring kids to, great for walking and good biking areas. You get a beautiful view of the miami skyline and wind surfers from the parking lot.

It cost $7 to enter and they were all out of maps, so we had no idea where to find trails or whatever else might be available. We did find the main parking area where there was a beach and a beautiful view of downtown Miami.

We visited the area last week and were pleasantly surprised. It's situated in a little quiet cove, off the beaten path, perfect for a date, family outing, or gathering of friends. We saw all of the aforementioned and everyone seemed so relaxed. Folks were picnicking, para surfing/sailing, jogging, swimming, biking and just enjoying the warm sun and refreshing breeze. You...

I come to this park for the beach which is basically a large tidal pool that fills with water from the ocean.. when you look at the water it is somewhat dark and dirty looking but it is clean and basically refreshed each day with ocean water that comes in via the channel and pipes they have... there is one...

I go to this park with my husband. We bike from home and go around the park. It has a nice view but I don't swim there because the water looks dirty.

Beautiful place to see the sunset ! Today was super moon and the view was incredible ! Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked with reservations; will reserve in advance next time for the whole experience.

This park is one of my favorites in Miami, is not full of people and you can have the best sunset views! There are some tables in case you want to do picnics and I think it have some BBQ grills as well, there is a natural shallow pool that is great for kids and you can always find some... More

I was in Miami for a couple of days and decided to visit the Grove first, then made a pit stop at the Park. I have not been here in years and is not as nice as I remember. The pool area is small but fairly empty. But for the hang gliding outside of the Park, there was not enough... More
