David Kennedy Park

About the Park

Located off of S. Bayshore Drive and covering over 20 acres of bayfront green space, David T. Kennedy park is where Grove locals go for exercise and playtime. Its majestic trees, waterfront vistas, and open lawn areas provides visitors with a tranquil escape only minutes away from downtown Coconut Grove. Park hours are sunrise to sunset.

From coastal mangrove hammocks to grassy glades of mature trees, the park offers an oasis of abundant greenery for its many recreational activities. Locals come here to toss Frisbees, play soccer or have a family picnic. For the fitness oriented, the park features a low impact rubber asphalt running paths, various calisthenic exercise stations, and a large outdoor resistance based gym area.

Bring your furry companion to the large well maintained dog park which features separate fenced off areas for large and small dogs. Other park facilities include a large playground for kids and three sand volleyball courts.

There for a view of the bay? The benches along the bay are the perfect spot to catch the sunrise. For some restorative ocean breezes, stroll out onto the boardwalk bridge that angles out onto the bay.

Before you leave, visit A.C.'s Icees frosted lemonade stand for a refreshing treat. An iconic landmark at Kennedy Park's parking lot since 1978, A.C.'s Icee is open daily 11 am - 6 pm.
