An urban waterfront site, Bayfront Park covers 13 hectares (32 acres) of downtown Miami. The park features a beach area, rock garden, waterfalls, monuments, sculptures, and an amphitheater. Famed sculptor Isamu Noguchi designed the park in 1980 and included three of his sculptures: the Slide Mantra, the Challenger Memorial, and the Light Tower. Amble along the boardwalk for views of the waterfront, or explore the paths within the park for close-up views of Noguchi's sculptures. Find the plaque marking the spot where Franklin D. Roosevelt avoided a possible assassination attempt in 1933, which claimed the life of Chicago's mayor, Anton Cermak.

Bayfront Park Reviews
This what I call modern city’s park it it’s best. Super green and clean. Free yoga every week. Different events and shows. The best views in town. The only problem it has it’s lots of homeless people. I don’t mind people findind their home in the park. But it doesn’t feel safe.
A don't- miss outing for anyone visiting or living in S Fl! It's totally gorgeous, great views of the bay and boats... wonderful shopping and food/drink outlets. You'll come back for more for sure!
