Miami is the city equivalent of Madonna or Beyoncé. It’s so well known, it doesn’t need a last name. And for good reason; the city has so many wonderful qualities, it’s hard to list them all … beautiful beaches; colorful cuisine; historic architecture; legendary nightlife; so on and so on. But there’s one thing that’s often overlooked – its green spaces. I get it. There are so many obvious things to love about the city that the parks aren’t the things most people associate with Miami. But spend an afternoon at Pinecrest Gardens or Virginia Key Beach Park and you’ll never be able to think of Miami without thinking of its collection of parks, gardens and green spaces!
Miami’s greatest natural spaces are an amalgamation of wild blue waters, beautifully forgotten wilderness and lush greenery. They’re a feast for the eyes and the soul! I love the Barnacle Historic State Park, it’s the oldest home in Dade County still standing on its original site. What’s not to love?! It’s a park after my own realtor heart! My furry baby is partial to Brickell Key Park. Situated on the tip of Brickell Key, it links up to the Brickell Key baywalk that circles the island, and provides endless opportunities to chase squirrels and birds.
Google is full of articles summarizing Miami’s natural outdoors, but this one lists some of the lesser known, and more beautiful ones. Do you live near one or have a personal favorite?
