Reviewed January 13, 2014

What a tremendous place. Spend the day. Swim in the pool (one of the best in the nation)! Hang at the beach. AWESOME.

“Great spot for swimming”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Most of the areas for swimming in the keys are rocky. Founders Park has a beautiful sandy beach. They also have a pool (fee) and boatramps etc. If you are staying at an area hotel bring your reciept and entrance is free.

“Nice local park, good facilities”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The beach is quite small, but the park itself (on the gulf side) is quite nice. Tennis courts, soccer fields, a pool and some walking paths. I wouldn't go too far out of my way to get here but we were staying nearby and it was a nice place to walk the dogs.

“Beach and walking path”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

In an area surrounded by water yet quite a challenge to get to sit by the water unless you are mooring a boat or staying at a place that has water access, this park in Islamorada provides a nice little beach (Gulf of Mexico) as well as some walking paths to stretch your legs. Not sure when there are any concerts but the outdoor amphitheater looks like a great place to hang out and hear some.
