Greynolds Park is a 265-acre (1.07 km2) urban park in metropolitan Miami, just north of North Miami Beach, Florida, United States.

History

In 1933 A. O. Greynolds donated the tract of land, originally used as a limestone quarry, to Dade County.[1] The park was developed between 1936 and 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps as a part of the New Deal public works program.[2]

Facilities

The park offers various amenities, including picnic and recreation areas, a golf course, a bird rookery, a boathouse, and a 42-foot (13 m) mound, the highest point in South Florida.

The boathouse features a nature exhibit and offers interpretive programs including guided nature walks, lectures, campfires and more. Kayak, canoe and paddleboat rentals are available on weekends and holidays.
