Originally called Royal Palm Park, Bayfront Park was the Greater Miami community’s first public gathering space. The park was built in 1896 and had nothing more than a pavilion and a green space that visitors used for baseball games and track and field activities. A bandshell was added later, and the park was often used for athletic competitions, cultural and religious happenings, political events and more.

After expanding many times over the years, Bayfront Park now spans 32 acres in the heart of Downtown Miami and sits right on Biscayne Bay. Perfect for families who want to relax, play or exercise, this iconic park has open lawn spaces, a wide baywalk, winding walkways, a sandy beach area, a stunning fountain, performance venues with special event lighting and VIP seating areas, a tropical rock garden, a waterfall that dates back to 1926 and so much more.

Maurice A. Ferré Park

Formerly called Museum Park, the 21-acre Maurice A. Ferré Park is home to the Peréz Art Museum Miami and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Located north of AmericanAirlines Arena, this park is considered an extension of Bayfront Park. It sits right on Biscayne Bay and has an outdoor amphitheater, grassy areas, walking and biking baths and Plaza de la Marina Española (Spanish Navy Plaza), a monument that honors the Spanish Navy and its arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1492.
