Great spot to relax has everything a park can ask for. Marina, beach pool, restaurant, park, trails kite surfing. If you have kids the beach pool is perfect. They have life guards and provide bathrooms with change rooms nearby.
This place is a hidden gem within the busy Miami buzz. Opened to the public in 1930. It remains one of those free gifts (thanks to the donation of land from Willian J. Matheson) one must enjoy. An encounter of the nature kind! With mangroves, hardwood forest, open green areas for picnics, marina and at the end, the open Biscayne Bay with an enclosed beach pond, perfect for kids and all in the family. Great to make it a biking destination, whether you bike from home, or drive/park and unload your two wheels at the Cartagena Circle. Start pedaling Southbound on Old Cutler Rd. about 18 minutes to find it on your left. You are in for a treat... Enjoy... Thank you Mr. Matheson!
