Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park, Miami FL

Description

Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park truly is in an enchanted forest! You can imagine that plenty of fairies live here! Walk along the paths through a wonderland of tropical trees hung with vines. The sun shines through the trees, glistening on the bright green leaves of the vines. The twisty branches set the atmosphere. Under the shade of the trees are two imaginative playgrounds, a toddler playground with a spinning globe, and a big kid playground with a rope climby that takes you up closer to the trees. Kids have a blast running between the two playgrounds. This is a popular playground so there are usually some other kids to play with.
There are rocks to climb throughout the rest of the park, plus a pond.
This park is close to the FIU Biscayne Bay campus.
Nearby, check out the gorgeous blue-green waters of Oleta River State Park. Also take a walk around St. Bernard de Clairvaux Monastery, from 12th century Segovia, Spain!
