Palmetto Bay Parks
The Village of Palmetto Bay is also known as the “Village of Parks” due to the high number and quality of parks in the area. There are many large family-friendly parks, including Palmetto Bay Park and Coral Reef Park, where you can bring the whole family for an entire day of fun. When we say the whole family, we mean the whole family…even your dogs. The community features a lovely dog park, so your pups can even join in on the fun.
Palmetto Bay Park
17535 SW 95th Avenue
Palmetto Bay, FL
Palmetto Bay Park was the very first park redone after the founding of the Village of Palmetto Bay. Before the Village was incorporated, a small 5-acre park stood in its place. The area is now a massive 25-acre park facility. The park has everything you could ever need in a local family park. There are massive fields for soccer, football, and any other sport played on the grass, six softball fields, basketball courts, a recreation room open for party rentals, a jogging path, picnic pavilions, and a massive concession and observation building. A skate park can even be found on site. It also boasts the largest boundless playground in South Florida. A boundless playground is one that is accessible to all kids, including ones that are handicapped. The existence of all of these amenities, including such a progressive playground, shows the community’s commitment to please all of its various inhabitants.
Coral Reef Park
7895 SW 152nd Street
Palmetto Bay, FL
Coral Reef Park is one of the largest family parks in South Florida. It spans more than 50 acres and is nestled right in the heart of the Village of Palmetto Bay. This park has it all: beach volleyball courts, open fields, baseball fields, a playground, gazebos and recreation rooms for party rentals, a pinelands reserve, picnic areas, racquetball courts, plenty of tennis courts, and, of course, a jogging path. After running all day with your friends or family, grab a bite at the Parkside Café under the pavilion. Because of the pinelands reserve on site, there is an abundance of wildlife in the area including many different kinds of birds, perfect for the casual nature-lover. The park also offers football, baseball, softball, and tennis programs that the entire family can enjoy. If you live with an active family, love to bird watch, or just wish to find a tranquil place to read a book, then this massive park is perfect for you.
Thalatta Estate Park
17301 Old Cutler Road
Palmetto Bay, FL
This park, located in the eastern part of Palmetto Bay, is so beautiful that it hosts many weddings every year. The park has a gorgeous ceremonial staging area overlooking Biscayne Bay where many locals have said, “I do.” The 4-acre park is home to a quaint two-story vintage house called “Thalatta,” which is a variation of the Latin word meaning “the sea.” The Connett family built the residence back in 1926. The house’s style is very similar to the Mediterranean style of Deering Estate’s housing, which is located just north of the park. On site, you will find groom and bride suites. On top of these special amenities, the park also has picnic tables, bicycle racks and trails, manicured gardens, a nice little pond, a couple of terraces, a museum, and plenty of South Florida’s finest natural views.
17641 Old Cutler Road
Palmetto Bay, FL
This is not just any old public park. This park is attached to a public library, so you can grab a book and enjoy it while feeling the sea breeze from Biscayne Bay. Ludovici Park is also located in the easternmost part of Palmetto Bay. The library is also home to a great amphitheater where tons of local musical performances, lectures, workshops, and children’s activities take place. The park also offers many walkways with views of the ocean, manicured gardens, a shaded gazebo, and an open area to lie out. If you are in the area, stop by this little gem of a park.
