#3 of 32 in Parks in Miami
An urban waterfront site, Bayfront Park covers 13 hectares (32 acres) of downtown Miami. The park features a beach area, rock garden, waterfalls, monuments, sculptures, and an amphitheater. Famed sculptor Isamu Noguchi designed the park in 1980 and included three of his sculptures: the Slide Mantra, the Challenger Memorial, and the Light Tower. Amble along the boardwalk for views of the waterfront, or explore the paths within the park for close-up views of Noguchi's sculptures. Find the plaque marking the spot where Franklin D. Roosevelt avoided a possible assassination attempt in 1933, which claimed the life of Chicago's mayor, Anton Cermak.

  • We were visiting from Texas. We were there during spring break season. It was nice and not too congested. They had live music and lots of shopping and eating. They had a lot of popular stores from the mall to shop at. They also have boat tours that you can book right on the pier. There are a lot of boats out there. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing. I enjoyed myself here.
  • Beautiful park with ample green to sit down and enjoy the afternoon. Parking is bit limited to get to the park though. On weekends, Bayside will charge you up to $25 flat rate for parking, and to park on the municipal street garage... well, let's say you're gonna spend a lot of time waiting for a spot to open up. But that would definitely not be $25
  • Nice place to enjoy with the family, nice park for kids, great view to the ocean. I’ll keep going there with all my family. We were lucky and saw a play named The Tempest from Sheakspeare adapted for kids this last weekend!! Had a great Time !
  • My boyfriend and I enjoyed our short time here. The view is amazing and the atmosphere is lively! Would definitely come back to see this place again!
  • My daughter was in the process of driving past this park and I asked her to stop and lets take a short stroll. The weather was great, the patrons were friendly and we had a lovely scenic view. I think if anyone is looking for pretty scenery they will like this park. Nice park. Nice views to the bay and sea. You can go there for jogging or just to have a walk. Good place to have some rest from the city noise
