It is roughly bound by Northwest Fifth Street to the north, Flagler Street to the south, Northwest Third Avenue to the east, and the Miami River to the west. On October 25, 2006, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Lummus Park has some of the oldest structures in Miami, and over the decades, has been able to retain a large part of its early pioneer character.HistoryLummus Park, was created in 1909, as one of Miami's first open, green spaces. The opening of the park in 1909, spurred development in the area, and today, most of the building around the park were built before 1926. The neighborhood has a variety of Mediterranean Revival, Frame, and Masonry Vernacular styles of architecture, and is home to Miami's old Scottish Rite Temple.Lummus Park represents development in Miami before the phenomenal growth of the Florida land boom of the 1920s. The Lummus Park area was platted in 1909, following the creation of Lummus Park in 1909. The park was the catalyst for the development of the surrounding area into a residential neighborhood. The land on which the neighborhood is located was originally owned by the Model Land Company, Henry Flagler's real estate company. The extant buildings and structures, such as the Scottish Rite Temple, are illustrative of the growth patterns in Miami, where areas closest to the water and downtown developed early in the history of the city.You can plan Miami trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

This community park has many activities that a family can enjoy from a playground that kids can enjoy playing to picnics that couples can have a date on a morning or afternoon. They also have barbecue area to do kids party or any family event. They have basketball court for those that love playing basketball. The most important part of it is that is a safe environment because right next to it is the police station. The place is nice and neat and environmental friendly. Even do there is no parking lot the outside city area has parking for you to park the car. There are some historic little house events.
We stayed here for about 4 hours. Well spent time with my family members. The park is absolutely amazing.
