Park Description:

With its golf and tennis facilities, unique eco-adventures and breathtaking beach, Crandon Park offers something for everyone. Join us for a whirlwind tour!

The Crandon Park Visitor and Nature Center is located on the breathtaking barrier island of Key Biscayne, with the Atlantic Ocean on the east side and Biscayne Bay to the west. Visitors to the park can explore the various ecosystems of the key including the dunes, mangroves, and coastal hammock and seagrass beds; and observe herons, ospreys and many brilliantly colored butterflies.  The Island is also home to rare and beautiful plants like the beach peanut, Biscayne prickly ash and the coontie.

The beautiful sandy beach, coastal dunes and tropical hardwood hammocks are an important nesting and feeding ground for migrating songbirds, hawks and sea turtles.  Seagrass beds provide a home for mangrove snapper, parrotfish, crabs, shrimp, sea stars and puffer fish.

The Bear Cut Preserve located in Crandon Park is a designated natural environment study area, and serves as a window to the wilderness that was once South Florida.  Miami-Dade Parks' naturalists guide visitors through the preserve to explore the hammock, ocean and beach communities and see the amazing animals and plants that inhabit South Florida.
