Summer is here, which means that the Sunshine State is the warmest and you should be ready to hit the beach or the park to enjoy a lovely sunny day.
There are indeed many options to have a good time in SoFlo, but nothing like finding a great park to enjoy a Sunday afternoon. Here are our favorites.
One of our personal favorites. Located in the heart of south beach, this park is large enough to contain a bit of everything, including a field and track, basketball courts, a soccer field, a baseball stadium, a lap pool, two dog parks, a few tennis courts, and more.
Located between Atlantic Ocean and Ocean Drive (5th St and 14th Place), this park faces the beach and therefore is always busy, with street vendors, tourists, music, people having fun. Lummus Park features a pavilion shelter, playground, outdoor fitness areas, walking trails and even restrooms. This park serves as a host to multiple events throughout the year, so don't be surprised if next time you go looks a bit different.
North Beach Bandshell
This oceanside park is more like a premier event venue. It contains an outdoor amphitheater, and it's home for arts and music festivals. Originally built in 1961 and renovated in 2011, the Bandshell continues being a special place of gathering for the entire North Beach community.

South Pointe Park
The park is at the southernmost point of Miami Beach. It features beautiful views of Fisher Island, Key Biscayne and Downtown Miami. Dog owners, will be happy to know this one: South Pointe is an off-leash park, with zero enclosures. Your dog will be able to roam free all over the designated area and interact with other fellow furry friends. Also at this park there's a promenade called Cut Walk. Absorb the ocean breeze and enjoy a nice, long walk.

Always remember, there's so much more to South Florida than Miami Beach or South Beach.
