301 N. Biscayne Blvd
Redesigned in the early 1980s by Isamu Noguchi*, Bayfront Park is a 32-acre site located in the epicenter of downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay.  It is bounded on the north by Bayside Marketplace (an open-air festival style mall that attracts 23 million people per year), on the south by InterContinental Hotel, and on the west by Biscayne Boulevard (downtown Miami’s “main street”).  It is three blocks from Interstate I-95 and is also easily accessible by Miami-Dade County public transportation (Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-Rail, and Metrobus).

Bayfront Park's 32 acres of lush greenery includes a small sand beach, tropical rock garden and waterfall (dating back to 1926), playground, fountain, Light Tower, and many different monuments**.  The park recently underwent a renovation of its baywalk. The baywalk runs along the edge of Biscayne Bay, throughout the park, and continues to Bayside Marketplace. Renovations include tree plantings, benches, removable chairs, bike racks, trash containers, pavers, and a re-working of a portion of the irrigation system. The renovations were intended to soften the edges of the park and create a more pedestrian friendly environment. “Oaks and palms by the dozen have been planted along the full length of the 32-acre park’s edge on Biscayne Bay, bringing instant shade to its broad baywalk and completing a gradual makeover designed to make it a far more inviting place.” – The Miami Herald


FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park
301 N. Biscayne Blvd
FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park is located within Bayfront Park and is managed and operated by Live Nation. It reopened in August of 2009 after a multi-million dollar renovation that included permanent reserved seats; new, picturesque sightlines to Biscayne Bay; a new superior roof structure; state-of-the-art production capabilities; VIP boxes with table service and VIP parking; permanent, new restroom facilities; expanded concessions, and more. In 2020, the new FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park was completed, which has 500 solar panels. The canopy-like solar structure covers nearly 400 feet of walkway around the venue. The Bayfront Park Amphitheater has been renamed the FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park. The solar panels double as a research facility and showcase Miami’s commitment to sustainability. Also included in the 500-panel solar installation are seven solar trees located around the park. The solar canopy and trees feature LED lighting that illuminate the venue at night and can be programmed to change colors to coincide with special events. For bookings and inquiries please contact Live Nation at 561-795-8883 or


Tina Hills Pavilion
301 N. Biscayne Blvd
The Tina Hills Pavilion (capacity 1,000) is also located within the park and is available for smaller concerts, receptions, corporate events, and press conferences. The 1,000 capacity is comprised of fixed seating for 200 and lawn seating for 800. The flexibility of the open-air design allows for play toward the seats or away from the seats, facing Biscayne Bay.


Maurice A. Ferré Park
1075 Biscayne Blvd.
Maurice A. Ferré Park is a spectacular 21-acre waterfront site, with the longest continuous length of bay walk within the City of Miami, is adjacent to the cruise ship turning basin in Biscayne Bay. Maurice A. Ferré Park re-opened to the public on June 14, 2014. The park is also home to the Perez Art Museum Miami, which opened in December 2013, and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, which opened in May 2017. Adjacent to the park's south side is the seven acre FEC Slip. The seawall at this seven acre body of water was designed to host tall ships and other water dependent events. With the reopening of Maurice A. Ferré Park, there are now 53 acres of public waterfront parkland under the Trust’s management.

Unlike most outdoor facilities, the Bayfront Park Management Trust facilities are open twelve months per year. The beautiful Miami weather, with an annual average temperature of 76 degrees Fahrenheit, allows for year-round operation. The fact that Miami is a major market with over 2.6 million people in Miami-Dade County completes the equation.

*Recognized as the 20th century’s foremost American sculptor, Isamu Noguchi’s innovative parks, plazas, playgrounds, fountains, gardens, and public pieces are located in many different countries and celebrated around the world. Bayfront Park contains three significant Noguchi sculptures: the Slide Mantra, the Challenger Memorial and the Light Tower. The Slide Mantra is a 10 foot high, white carrara marble slide weighing 29 tons. This slide demonstrates Noguchi’s long held belief that play could lead to a new appreciation of sculpture. The Challenger Memorial is a white, metal pipe tower that rises approximately 100 feet out of the park’s southwest corner. The sculpture is dedicated to the memory of the Challenger astronauts. The Light Tower is representative of Noguchi’s earlier work with monumental shapes and their interaction with light. The forty foot, aubergine tower makes references to Japanese lanterns and the full moon over Miami. 

**Monuments in Bayfront Park include the Challenger Memorial, a World War II Veterans’ Memorial, Mildred and Claude Pepper Fountain, statues of Claude Pepper, Christopher Columbus, and Julia Tuttle, and the Centennial Time Capsule.
