• Miami

The only water park within the City of Miami, offering four pools, two slide pools, one for toddlers, one for older children and adults, a recreation pool and a lazy river, all ages can come and cool off in the summer months. Located conveniently off the 836, Grapeland Water Park offers easy access from anywhere in Miami Dade County. Open March thru October, families can visit to splash around, come for the Dive-In Movies, or book a party to celebrate a birthday or graduation, or even special holidays.

An instant hit since it was completed in 2004, this 24.5-acre park was named the top attraction in the Midwest in 2017. Among its many draws are Frank Gehry’s Pritzker Pavilion, which hosts free concerts and movie screenings in the summer; sculptor Anish Kapoor’s 110-ton Cloud Gate (a.k.a. “The Bean”); and Jaume Plensa’s Crown Fountain, with its ever-changing array of locals’ faces spewing water every five minutes in the summer months. The Lurie Garden wows with year-round flower displays and monthly garden walks.

Thank you for visiting City of Miami Parks! We have 140+ park locations and we are committed to providing the highest level of recreation services to our residents and visitors. You will find we have something for everyone. Whether you want to swim, play tennis, rent a shelter, go for a bike ride or just spread out a picnic blanket and soak up the beautiful Miami weather.

Years as travel editor for a NYC newspaper shaped my understanding of several special things. I love to convey the wonder and "whoa's!" of places I go, and I am always eager to share relevant tips to people like me, mainly etiquette and emotions.
