Beware!!! This isn't a beach; it's a water hole sewage place. Is disgusting and it smells like a sewage. The water is brown full of algae and the floor feels all muddy. The water smells and there like poop chunks floating in the water, I pick up my kids and decided to go back to the hotel pool at least... More

Beautiful, well kept. Even with a small beach on the bay. The beach water is murky is but it's a great place for children to play in the sand. For those not familiar with the area, the park is a good 45 min from Miami Beach. And best time to visit is not the summer. Too hot and humid!

If Miami beach is too hyped and Key Biscayne too crowded for you, a very nice, relaxed beach option is the Park. Perfect for families, and small kids, there is a shallow round pool to let them play the whole day, while you picnic or fish or bathe. Marina with sailing school, fishing spots and beautiful sunsets all there. Entrance... More

We have four young children ranging in age from 6.5 - 6months. I loved the fact that their was no current or rip tide -- it's perfect for small kids. The beach itself is beautiful. The views of Miami are great! The water is very warm (almost too warm) and I hated the muddy, mukky water, however my kids didn't... More

We have been to the local Botanic Gardens and someone we bumped into suggested that we come to Matheson Park as after 5pm it if free to enter and as we had not planned to get to our friends until 6.30pm this seems ideal. What a delightful place, particularly to stroll around, by the seashore, see the sun go down... More

I have lived in Miami twenty plus years and this was my first visit to this park. No one had ever recommended it to me before until recently. We went an paid an entry fee of $7.00 just to ride around and have a look. If you like to see mangroves, they are there. If you want to trailer your... More
