Greynolds Park

Oasis on the Oleta

Set along the Oleta River, this 249-acre verdant oasis puts a slice of wilderness within minutes of Northeast Miami neighborhoods. From exploring the park's historic sites to nature hikes or cruising the miles of bike paths, Greynolds Park offers countless family-friendly outdoor activities.

What You Need to Know

Greynolds Park is open sunrise to 30 min before sunset. If you're on foot or on a bike, park admission is free. If you prefer to drive in, there's a $7 parking fee on weekends and free parking during the weekdays.

First time visiting?

The historic Greynolds Park Boathouse is a great jumping off point for exploring the park. From Tequesta settlement to a Seminole outpost to oolitic lime quarry, the park's site is steeped in Native American/early South Florida history. Learn about the park's flora and fauna as well as its colorful history at the interpretive center/nature exhibit or attend a Guided Historic Nature Walk. EcoAdventure tours, such as Creatures of the Night or Oleta River Canoe Trip are also offered - by reservation only. Before you leave the boathouse area, head over to the 46-foot Observation Mound where you can take in a sweeping view of the park grounds and surrounding neighborhoods. During the weekend (and holidays), the boathouse has kayaks, paddleboats, and canoes for rent.

Pristene Wilderness

Home to both tropical hardwood hammock and estuarine mangrove forests, Greynolds Park features miles of trails under a mixed canopy of trees that include gumbo limbo, strangler fig, live oak, and red mangrove. Explore the Hammock trail, northeast of the boathouse, that winds through one of the park's tropical hardwood forests. Wander the natural Lakeside Trail and Old Rookery Trail that weave along the lake banks and through the lakes' islands. Depending on the time of day, expect to spot a diverse variety of wildlife such as raccoons, foxes, squirrels, bats, turtles, migratory birds, butterflies and more.

Camp Greynolds

Less than a 1/2 mile from the main park grounds, Camp Greynolds offers a tranquil retreat for an overnight nature getaway. Located on the banks of the Oleta River, the campgrounds feature nine rustic wood cabins equipped with cushioned bunk beds and a campsite. There's also a dining hall, full kitchen, restrooms/showers, grills, campfire ring, and canoe launch.

Picnicking at the Park

For impromptu picnics, there's no shortage of grassy spots or shaded picnic tables. Planning a party? Spaces such as picnic shelters/pavilions and the boathouse can be reserved in advance (rental fees apply). Other family-friendly amenities include a playground and sand volleyball courts.

Golfing on the Green

Looking to hone your golf skills on a budget? The park features a well maintained 3,100 yard par-36, 9 hole course notable for its moderately priced green fees. Course amenities include practice facilities, electric carts, and club rentals. After a round, stop in at the clubhouse for a refreshment or to unwind. There's also a Pro Shop and 9 hole FootGolf course on the premises.

Park Events

Pack a blanket and throw on a dashiki for the 60s inspired Love In Music Festival held annually at the park. If you prefer smaller crowds, the park plays host to a monthly Bluegrass Festival organized by the South Florida Bluegrass Association.
