About Crandon Park
Crandon Park’s doors were officially opened to the public on November 9, 1947.
The park had a small zoo until 1980, but Crandon Park is now well-known for its stunning beach, which includes a seaside carousel, picnicking, cabanas, a nature center, a full-service marina, and a world-class tennis center and golf course. This park boasts water sports like clear kayak rides, stand-up paddleboarding, and kiteboarding.

Crandon Park’s 75th-anniversary celebration will bring natural enthusiasts, history lovers, and those interested in having a thrilling weekend by exploring this iconic landmark under one roof. The eco-festival will offer visitors fun-filled, eco-focused activities hosted by Miami-Dade Parks.
Some highlights include walking tours of Crandon Gardens, a beach cleanup, musical performances, a vendors’ market, educational displays, a fun zone, a wine and beer garden, and much more.
