The City of Miami Parks and Recreation Department's mission statement says it best: To provide state of the art park facilities and offer leisure, educational, cultural and physical activities to the residents and visitors of our community while enhancing their quality of life and inspiring personal growth. With that said, athletes, adventurists and amateurs alike can definitely find some fun in the sun at any local park around town. Just to name a few, Crandon Park, Bill Baggs State Park, Greynolds Park and Oleta River State Park offer beaches, hiking, nature trails, fishing and canoeing. For the naturists there's AD Doug Barnes Park, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Arch Creek and Matheson Hammock Park. For the more athletic, Flamingo Park, Tropical Park and Tamiami Park offer baseball, tennis, jogging, swimming and then some. And for our four legged friends with proper vaccination, Kennedy Park, Flamingo Park, and Amelia Earhart Park offer off-leash activities and water features.
