FIU Nature Preserve

11200 SW Eighth St., Miami

Right on Florida International University's main campus, this place packs three distinct ecosystems -- pine rocklands, tropical hardwood hammocks, and freshwater wetlands -- into just 13 acres and features more than 450 types of plants, including several that are endangered.

J.C. Bermudez Park

3000 NW 87th Ave., Doral

Ironically, it can be difficult to find true green space in Dade's western suburbs, but this 82-acre park right in the middle of Doral features a scenic lake, free yoga classes, and plenty of spots for grilling and picnics.
