Park History

With its open view of Biscayne Bay, plenty of recreational options and a lovely canopy of trees to relax and play under, it’s no wonder Peacock Park is a popular gathering spot in Coconut Grove. With a storied history that dates back to 1883, Peacock Park sits on what was once the site of the area's first hotel – Bay View Inn. Its owners, Charles and Isabella Peacock, later renamed the hotel to the Peacock Inn and allowed it to serve as the first venue for local Miami community gatherings. In recognition of the couple’s contribution to the area, the park site was renamed Peacock Park in 1973.

The earliest black community on the South Florida mainland began in the area in the late 1870s. A black community, mostly from the Bahamas, came via Key West to work at the Peacock Inn. Their first-hand experience with tropical plants, agriculture, and building materials proved invaluable to the development of Coconut Grove.
