Hialeah offers plenty of public parks and areas to cool off with a swim. Head to Hialeah and explore one of the many public parks with community and Olympic-sized pools, lazy rivers, large green spaces, outdoor amphitheaters and more. We recommend checking with each location for current hours and operational guidelines.

Bucky Dent Water Park

Bucky Dent Water Park is located in the heart of Hialeah, and makes up part of the 25-acre Bucky Dent Park. This water park promises fun for the whole family, with a zero-depth-entry swimming pool, an activity pool with a slide, two twin water slides that rise 30 feet in the air, a concession stand and various lounging areas.

The public pool is open from the spring to the fall, and swim lessons are available Monday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 2240 West 60th Street, Hialeah, FL 33016

Goodlet Park

Not far from Miami International Airport, Goodlet Park is a 28-acre park. It has 11 tennis courts, five racquetball courts, four basketball courts and three baseball/softball fields—all well-lit for both day and evening use. There is a paved 440-yard track with bleachers, a fenced-in children's playground, a recreation center with a concession stand, and a 200+ seat theater that can be used for private events and local recitals. Finally, different from most parks in the area, this one has two fields specifically for Futsal, a Brazilian sport that's a lot like soccer, but played on a hard court with no court lines, walls or boundaries.

Goodlet Park is open year-round. 4200 West 8th Avenue, Hialeah, FL 33012

Perfect for everything from exhibits to concerts, this 34,500 square-foot, multi-purpose venue is known for being versatile, affordable and elegant.

The most-visited part of the park is the Ted Hendricks Football Stadium, which can accommodate 10,000 spectators and serves as “home field” for Hialeah Miami Lakes High School, Hialeah High School, Goleman High School, Miami Springs High School and American High School.

Cuban Culture in Exile Heritage Park

Unlike any other park in Miami, Cuban Culture in Exile Heritage Park is dedicated to exactly what its name implies: Cuban heritage. Established by Pedro Roman, founder of the Academia de las Luminarias de las Bellas Artes (A.L.B.A.), this city-sponsored park is dotted with artsy, historic monuments honoring high-profile names in Cuban history, like singers Olga Guillot and Celia Cruz.

Cuban Culture in Exile Heritage Park is open Monday through Friday, from 2 p.m. to sunset. The park is located at the intersection of Hialeah Drive and Northeast 9th Avenue.
