Very pleasant spot to enjoy the outdoors. Some people put up a beach chair and watch the boats go by. Others picnic, jog, walk or cycle. We cycled it. A bobcat and an iguana ran across the trail in front of us. Good place for...More

Along the Inter-coastal channel. I believe it is handicapped accessible. There are bicyclists however they are courteous. You can go for as short or as long a walk as you want to.

Nice, clean open area for families, recreation and nature. Nice for get-togethers, too. I enjoy watching the boats on the waterway a lot.

While I didn't recall seeing dogs, it does seem like a good park for walking a dog. It is really 2+ mile walking/biking trail that goes down both sides of the innercoastal waterway. I checked the city website and it does... More

There is a small parking lot between the airport and Tamiami Rd, another at the railroad park by the canal.
