Heat and humidity, be damned! Summer in Miami is for getting outside, and all this sunshine has us sniffing out even more great green spaces in Miami where we can take in the fresh air. Sure, this city doesn’t have much of a pedestrian culture. But the best parks in Miami do give us plenty of reasons to head outdoors. Our parks are as diverse as our city, offering a variety of ecosystems and environments from the ocean to hammock-enclosed trails and thick mangroves you can paddle right up to. Miamians have access to a range of green spaces with eye-catching flora and fauna, fitness trails and all sorts of water-based activities. A day in the park is not only one of the best free things to do in Miami, but is also one of the best things to do in Miami with kids.
Note: Parks are currently open from 7am to 8pm for use by individuals and families, as permitted by and following current CDC and Florida Department of Health guidelines. Groups of 10 or more are not allowed in parks. Playgrounds and outdoor exercise equipment as well as picnic shelters remain closed.
