North Beach Oceanside Park

North Beach Oceanside Park

North Beach is the perfect place for visitors looking for a low-key, small beach town vibe with lots to see and do. If you're looking to explore local neighborhoods and love discovering new special places, this is the perfect place.

Wide Open Spaces

Located in Miami Beach between 78th Street and 87th Street, North Beach Oceanside Park is a beautiful gem in the heart of North Beach offering a natural and calming oasis.

The park is bordered by a row of dunes leading to an open expanse of tranquil beach with lifeguards on duty and plenty of room to spread out and listen to the sounds of the waves as you soak up the sun. You don't need to battle over beach turf here, so you can relax and walk on the beach in a serene setting.

Amenities for Groups

Need a place for a family reunion? As one of the biggest parks in Miami Beach, North Beach has plenty of picnic tables and grills under the shade of old-growth sea grape trees, as well as three pavilions for picnics and party rentals.

All pavilions have a BBQ grill, electricity and a restroom for convenience. There are swings and a play area for the little ones, benches along the trails, plus lots of water fountains and dispensers allowing you to refill your water bottles with the swipe of a credit card.

Park Activities & Recreation

If you’d rather plan a day going solo, this is the perfect park to wander winding paths or spend the afternoon reading a book in the shade. There’s also an outdoor fitness challenge course with self-powered workout stations along the way so you can enjoy fresh-air exercise. The meandering walk even has a natural shaded tree canopy to protect you from Miami's balmy heat while you are walking, running or roller-blading.

If you want to get in a little more exercise, rent a Citibike at 79th Street and Collins Avenue right outside the park, then take the 8-mile ride down to South Beach to experience its livelier atmosphere. There is a path close to the beach where you can enjoy the shoreline's scenery if you don't want to ride on the street. You can also hop on the boardwalk and stroll all the way from mid-beach or take a ride a little further north to Haulover Beach or Oleta Park for multiple trails and kayaking.

There are also concerts and live music at the North Beach Bandshell next door, plus local restaurants and lounges within walking distance.

Dog Parks & Pet-Friendly Restaurants

Your furry companion can even tag along on your next run in North Shore Oceanside Park. Although the dog runs are not on the beach itself, there are two huge areas at the north end of the park – one for little dogs and one for bigger ones.

North Shore is also a pet-friendly area as long as your four-legged friend is on a leash. Take a leisurely walk to enjoy great restaurants nearby with pet-friendly outdoor seating, like Burgers and Shakes or El Rancho Grande Cocina Mexicana.

Parking & Accessibility

Street parking is plentiful and inexpensive near North Shore Oceanside Park and you can pay with the ParkMobile app to make it even easier. The park is also handicapped accessible, with easy access to the beach and picnic pavilions.
