Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces
We create outstanding recreational, natural and cultural experiences to enrich you and enhance the quality of life for our community for this and future generations.
Join a bike ride from University Metrorail Station to Downtown Miami.

Miami-Dade Parks has 90 years of serving the community with natural spaces, programs and more.
We build memorable experiences and communities through well-designed parks and open spaces that are efficient, accessible, engaging and aesthetically pleasing, guided by our Parks Open Space Master Plan.
We offer year-round park and recreation programs for local children, adults and people with disabilities. Camps are held in the spring and summer during public school breaks. After-school activities are focused on fitness, nutrition and wellness, and developing an appreciation of nature, science and the cultural arts.
We also maintain the median strips, road shoulders and causeways for County roadways, busways, Metrorail and Metromover.
