Readers' Choice: Tropical Park
Miami is among the worst cities in the nation when it comes to finding peace. The bayfront is privately owned, the streets are jammed, and if you don't own a boat, it's hard to find a quiet place. Greynolds Park, boys and girls, is the glorious exception. There's something for everyone in this 249-acre beaut, which was donated to Miami-Dade County back in 1936 by the head of a rock-mining company. On one side, you have a golf course. Nearby, there's a large and quiet nature area. There are also several kids' playgrounds and great places to throw parties. You can't find a better place to take the family on a Sunday afternoon — that is unless you can hop on your Lear Jet and head for Switzerland.

I too grew up with Greynolds Park as I grew up in North Miami Beach on 178th St off of NE 6th just south of Velda Farms. After being away and now 58 years old I am flying into Hollywood and Greynolds Park is in the plan. As a kid I used to race the green turtles and have turtle races; I didn't hurt the turtles. Just so many wonderful memories.


I grew up at this park. It was were i learned how to ride my first bike. Had all my birthday parties here. It is a great place to spend a day with the kids. The remodeled the park. They have what i consider a hill that if your a fun loving parent, you could let your kid roll down it!!!!Also there are tons of iguanas here. Seriously the best park. I could write about it all day.

go during the weekdays its free, weekends you have to pay 3 or 4 dollars and sometimes its busy.
