To appreciate this small park I think a visit to HistoryMiami is necessary. Artifacts discovered at the location are now on display in the regional historical museum. The story about how county building ordinances prevented the construction of a waterfront condiminium on the site are heroic for the group that saved the site for an important cultural and historical interpretation of Miami's native people--the Tequesta Indians. On one side is a busy canal next to the drawbridge on Brickell Avenue. To the right is the Viceroy condominium complex--such a sharp contrast in civilazation--then and now. The circle is actually the foundation of a capitol building where the Indians met or carried on with political or community events. Interpretive displays and limestone rocks surround the original circle which is protected underground.
If you go, look for a slip road that parallels Brickell and descends to the river. It is usually flanked by taxis. Turn left immediately off of Brickell in front of the Viceroy and drive down to the park.
