South Pointe Park

1 Washington Avenue

Miami Beach, FL 33139

This breathtaking, 17-acre park is located at southern the tip of Miami Beach—the exact point where the Atlantic Ocean meets Biscayne Bay. 

 

With water on every side, acres and acres of green space, a prime view of the pristine Fisher Island and ships of all kinds sailing by, the park is truly one-of-a-kind. The lawns are perfect for games with the kids, from soccer and Frisbee to baseball, while the playground and mini-water park provide for a perfect play-up/cool-down cycle. Just don’t forget swim suits and towels! The kids always decide to get wet. The ramps leading to the observation deck are excellent for wheels, and the view up there is truly unbeatable.

 

A beautiful path along the water is perfect for scooting or just strolling along, watching the cruise ships go by. There is a snack shack, but it is definitely more snacks (smoothies, ice cream, etc) than meals.
