Sun and fun - it’s what the doctor ordered whenever you're in Miami. The city is overflowing with beachy parks for you and your family to enjoy. The largest urban park in Florida, Oleta River State Parkis located on Biscayne Bay and encompasses over 1,000 acres in the middle of North Miami. The park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails, ranging from novice trails to challenging trails for experienced bicyclists.
You and your family can also canoe and kayak down the river, exploring its amazing natural beauty. There’s a nice size swimming area during the day, and convenient picnic tables and grilling areas to follow a refreshing swim. One large picnic pavilion and eight medium pavilions can be rented for a fee. The large picnic pavilion, White Ibis, has electricity in case you’re interested in having a birthday party or event.
Other than kayaks and canoes, you can rent bicycles from BG Oleta River Outdoor Center. For overnight visits, the park has rustic, air-conditioned cabins and a youth campground for organized groups. Cabins can be reserved through ReserveAmerica or on a walk-in basis.
