A park with History

With its open view of Biscayne Bay, plenty of recreational options and a lovely canopy of trees to relax and play under, its obvious why Peacock Park is a popular gathering spot for Coconut Grove locals. Preceded by a storied history that dates back to 1883, Peacock Park sits on what was once the site of the area's first hotel - the Bay View Inn. The owners, Charles and Isabella Peacock, later renamed their hotel to the Peacock Inn and allowed it to serve as the first venue for local Miami community gatherings. In recognition of the Peacocks' contribution to the area, the park site was renamed to Peacock Park in 1973.

The first black community on the South Florida mainland began here in the late 1870s when Blacks primarily 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.
