Greynolds Park

Greynolds Park in North Miami Beach is the perfect place to get lost for a couple of hours. Situated next to the Oleta River, this is not Oleta River State Park but instead a northern crown jewel in the Miami-Dade parks system. Featuring a lake, hiking trails, bird watching opportunities (I spotted a woodpecker on my trip) and even a golf course, the park offers numerous opportunities for recreation. Open space is available as well, for those who want to have picnics or just run wild or toss the ball around, and then there's the lake and river for all you canoe and kayak enthusiasts. This is the kind of park where you'll see nature lovers, joggers and birthday party guests enjoying each other's company and the glories of the outdoors in Miami. A great urban park!

Greynolds Park: 17530 W. Dixie Highway, North Miami Beach, FL

A nice 15 minute hike through the hammock trail is recomended

A really cool feature at the park is this walkable mound.

Greynolds Park's very own top of the rock.
