We have driven by this park many times with out noticing it. One day we decided that we needed to visit a park in Miami that we had not visited before. It is a lovely place with some tame birds, turtles in the water, ponies (my husband saw them) that children can ride for $1.00 per minute. I have to... More

I brought my 89y/o mother of my wife and she was almost able to finish the trail (she has a heart problem, though) and she enjoyed the place very much w/ abundance of trees and flowers. A lot of ducks were following us near the small bridge on a lake but you are not allowed to feed them. A lot... More

Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is a great park for nature lovers and exercise buffs alike. Paved trails wind through the forest and around the horse stables for a peaceful walk or bike ride. It has a children's playground, resting benches along the trails & pond area and two pavilions with restrooms for events or parties. There is lots of... More

In my opinion Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is one of the best kept secrets in North Miami. No other park in the area more resembles a tropical rainforest. Air potato vines, though an invasive exotic plant hang everywhere giving it a jungle appearance. There are nature trails that go through the lush foliage. This park has the largest concentration...

Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is not massive in size, but it is a nice quiet place to walk or picnic in the shade of oak trees and forget that you're surrounded by concrete suburbia. Very close to Arch Creek park, Wildlife has a sanctuary here as well. I've seen ibis, squirrels, and others. Most people pass right by it... More

A quiet walk through the Enchanted Forest on NE 135th Street refreshes the senses and calms a weary mind. The grass and canal need cleaning, there is garbage in the water. But the kids who visit the park are mostly well-behaved and families are quiet. You can see ibis near the water in the morning. In the afternoon a train... More

We went early in the morning, and the park was empty. It is an enchanting place indeed. The nature trails are short in comparison to other parks, but what it lacks in size, it makes up in quaintness. My kids loved the horses and pony rides. Teenagers volunteer (they appreciate tips) during the day to give kids (ages 2-8) rides... More
