North Miami Beach, FL 33160
- Sunrise to Sunset
Once the site of a rock quarry, is now a 249-acre park consisting of a variety of habitats; most notably a relatively intact hardwood hammock and mangrove forest. The hammock at Greynolds is one of the last well-protected natural areas of northern Miami-Dade County.
Tequesta Indians used the Oleta River, which runs along the east side of the park, as a source of transportation. In the years following, the Seminole Indians used the land along side the river as a trading post and a source of supplies for early Miami-Dade County settlers. The park is named after A.O. Greynolds, the head of Ojus Rock Company, who deeded the land over to Miami-Dade County Parks Department in 1936.
Tips from foursquare
The 42 foot mound is the highest point in Miami.
It's very relaxing
There's a huge parking lot and as far as dog park assets, you've got shade structures, furniture, hosing stations, water fountains and lots of other goodies. Plenty to keep man and animal busy.
The playground is awesome! There is also a hill by the castle looking thing that so much fun to roll down!
Bring a spliff!
