Probably the best spot to bath, swim and rest with an amazing view on Miami. Great facility even for families.

This is a small water area where we went to enjoy the sunny, warm Coral Gables afternoon. Plenty of beach area for our blankets, Nice area for a picnic or family day out.

this park has a lagoon that is perfect for children and wading. Picnic areas at its edges are a relaxing place to find shade. we rented kayaks and had a lovely paddle in the bay and on the canals surrounded by mangroves and waterfront homes.
