Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park

Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park

Spread across 22 acres in North Miami, Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is a scenic oasis of subtropical plants, tree canopies and native wildlife. Bordering Arch Creek, this unique outdoor space has community and butterfly gardens, horse stables and even a monument to the heroes of Greater Miami’s LGBTQ community.

LGBTQ History

In 2017, Miami’s first public art monument to the local LGBTQ community was dedicated and installed at Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park. Created by artist Alan Gutierrez, the piece is inspired by the colors of a makeup palette and is called “Untitled (forms from MEDIAPRO HD ULTIMATE F/X 18 COLOR MAKEUP PALETTE).”

Butterfly Garden, Horseback Riding and More

Kids will love running around on the playground or on one of the open grassy fields. Nature lovers can get their fix at the butterfly or community gardens, in the nature center or through a series of educational environmental experiences designed for children ages 2-4. For a relaxing afternoon, go for a stroll on the park’s paved walking trail or have a picnic in one of the designated picnic areas.

If you’ve ever wanted to try horseback riding, this is the place to do it! Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is home to MM Equestrian Farm, which has horse stables, pony rides and a petting farm for all to enjoy.

Select facilities are available for rent and can be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Contact the park ahead of your visit to confirm normal operating hours and amenity availability.
