City of Miami parks are reopening Wednesday and here’s what you should know

Miami is reopening 26 of its park on May 20.


Nearly two weeks after the county gave the go-ahead for Miami-Dade parks to reopen, mayor Francis Suarez is finally allowing a handful of City of Miami’s parks to follow suit. On Wednesday, 26 of the city’s 148 public green spaces will reopen to parkgoers from 7am to 7pm—including the area’s most popular spaces, such as Kennedy, Margaret Pace and Morningside Parks. There will be strict guidelines in place and everyone must practice safe social-distancing and wear a mask (unless they’re running or are under the age of 2). To help you navigate this new world of safe outdoor activities, we’ve outlined the dos and don’ts of visiting a Miami park, of which you can find a complete list of here.

Things you CAN do

  • Run
  • Walk
  • Rollerblade
  • Ride your bike
  • Play tennis (in singles)


Things you CAN’T do:

  • Picnic
  • Play organized sports
  • Use the playground
  • Barbecue
  • Go swimming in the public pools
  • Take your pet to the park (dog enclosures are closed)
  • Hang out with friends (parkgoers must be solo or with members of their household)
