Jose Marti Park

Just minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Miami is Jose Marti Park, a 1.7-acre green space, along the Miami River, popular with neighborhood locals of all ages as well as visitors looking for a quick escape. A public riverwalk runs the length of the park grounds and provides benches where you can read a book, or while away some time watching the tugboats pass by. Among the park's recreational features are indoor and outdoor basketball courts, indoor gym, recreation building, picnic tables and more. Younger visitors can romp for hours in the park's large playground, which features a variety of structures to climb, swing from, see-saw and slide down - plus a covered play area, or play a game of kickball in the grassy field area.

The six-lane 25-meter pool at Jose Marti Park is the ideal spot for lap swimmers. During the weekend (10am-5pm), all six lanes are dedicated to lap swimming. The same is on weekdays from 6am-4pm, after 4 pm three of the lanes are used for the park's Learn-to-Swim program. If you prefer a less strenuous workout, there are adult water aerobic classes every Tuesday from 9-10am. Hours and number of dedicated lap lanes are subject to change during the summer to accommodate summer camp. Call the park's pool office for information on the swim program or for summer hours. Pool admission is free.

In need of centering after a hectic day? Drop in on Tuesdays for the free yoga class held from 6-7pm. Class capacity is determined on a first come first serve basis so try to get there a little early.

The park also offers community-geared activities such as afterschool programs and summer camp. Park hours are 6am - 10pm and admission is free.
