Tropical park is a preferred point in Southwest Miami to gather for sports, events, BBQ, relax or just walk around. I usually come here with my bicycle because it has nice trails and is extensive. Recommended.
Vibrant happy park which is always full of people. It has several ponds. Lots of trees and shady areas. Lots of picnic tables. Several nature trails. There is baseball, tennis, and people playing with the RC boats in the ponds. Bike trails, hills, and a very creative layout for people to do any number of activities at this park.
