#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
