Margaret Pace Park, Downtown Miami, Miami FL

Description

Margaret Pace Park is beautiful. Here you can sit under trees on little square or round benches and enjoy a strong cooling breeze off the water. This is a great place to come if you are in downtown and want to take in some nature. Stroll along the pathway and check out the strange throne sculptures that reach up to the sky and their colorful mosaic tiles. The playground is fenced, and from inside it is lovely, with views of the water, and tall colorful shade canopies. Kids can pretend they are on a ship, or enjoy the slides, fire pole, tic tac toe, and bouncy horses. There are also some monkey bars out of the fenced area, right by the water!
Parking is at a premium in this area, which makes this park inaccessible unless you're already downtown. Also, as with most city parks, there are some sketchy people here and there.
Another wonderful place to go for a cool breeze off the water is Perez Art Museum with its public swings outside overlooking the bay.
