South Pointe Park
Difficult to find parking on weekends. On weekends the cost to park nearby is $20, but you can search around the area and pay the parking meter. Sometimes, even if you are willing to pay the $20 there is no space available.
Entrance Fee: Free
This park has a stunning view, rolling grass hills, pathways, wisps of grass and beautiful surroundings. It also has a very modern shaded playground with rubberized floor that is great for kids. Next to it, you can find the park's pavillion with a snack bar that sells frozen yogurt; in the other side, there is a bathroom (clean), and an observation deck at the top of it. Nearby, there is an interactive water park where kids can enjoy during summer or people who comes back from the beach.
In this park you have access to the southernmost part of South Beach. It is quite and never too crowded. In the other edge of the park, there is a fine steakhouse restaurant, Smith and Wollensky which is a celebrity hot spot.
Since this park is located next to the Port of Miami, you can admire cruise ships and cargo ships going. There is an incredible view to Fisher Island. Great place to watch amazing sunsets and rises.
South Pointe Park Pier is under construction and it is supposed to be ready until 2014
If you want a bike, there is a bike rental station in front of Nikki Beach (next to the park)
