A Village Around A Garden

An upscale residential area continues to expand in Pinecrest.

Pinecrest is a suburban village in Miami-Dade County. In the 1930s, the area's growth began to evolve around one of the first tourist attractions established in the Miami vicinity - Parrot Jungle and Gardens.

Today, the former wildlife attraction has been turned into a community park, Pinecrest Gardens, where concerts, art shows and other special events are held year-round. At historic Pinecrest Gardens, the Farmer's Market is a popular weekly event.

Another natural haven in this residential area is the Wayside Market, a pit stop along Old Cutler Road, where there's a great biking path. The Wayside Market sells fresh juice and local tropical fruits, snacks and taste bud-tickling shakes that will keep you coming back to Pinecrest.
