Oleta River State Park

Oleta River State Park is a gem tucked in the middle of cosmopolitan Miami, in fact, it's Florida's largest city park.

Located between the banks of the river and the Intracoastal Waterway, just a stone-throw away from the high-rises and hectic pace of the city, this little oasis has much to offer in terms of recreational facilities, whether swimming or relaxing on the beach, paddling along the river and the mangrove forests, and even biking on the park's challenging 10-mile network of off-road trails.

Oleta's Beautiful Setting and Landscape

The park's unique setting and location provides a very varied landscape from sandy beaches to mangrove forests and nature trails, which together provide an amazing ecosystem for plants and wildlife as well as outdoor fun.
