Tropical Park has a tennis center with 12 tennis courts that are wheelchair-accessible, and racquetball facilities. There are four lakes within the park, a 2acre dog park, as well as paddleboating, and freshwater fishing. Cyclists, joggers, and runners use the miles of paved pathways circulating through park.
Equestrian CenterThroughout the year, the park hosts horse shows, rodeos, and other special events at the Tropical Park Equestrian Center. The equestrian center hosts over 30 horse shows a year, including international shows. The old racetrack's stables were used as part of the equestrian center.

  • 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.
