It has a beach, pier for fishing, bike rentals and grills for BBQs. I believe that you can also camp here. Great family gathering.

Somewhat disorganized. I am sure that they could do better if they try a little harder. Specially in keeping the place cleanner

Friends and I met there to walk the trails. It was a great work out, and the park was organized, cleaned and no issues. A line forms to get into the park on Sunday, even when you arrive before it opens. But once we were in the park we enjoyed ourselves and didn't have any issues. I will be going... More

We had the monthly outing with my coworkers. Great spot for BBQ- paddle boarding- biking- kayaking or just even hung out with friends. Avoid weekends as it could get crazy with lots of people from different areas.

We had a late flight out of Miami and had already checked out of our hotel for the day. We didn't want to spend the last day of our vacation inside of a mall, so we looked for someplace outdoors we could relax before heading out to the airport. The first choice was to go to the main beach areas,... More
