Redesigned in the early 1980s by Isamu Noguchi*, Bayfront Park is a 32-acre site located in the epicenter of downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay. It is bounded on the north by Bayside Marketplace (an open-air festival style mall that attracts 12 million people per year), on the south by InterContinental Hotel, and on the west by Biscayne Boulevard (downtown Miami’s main street€). It is three blocks from Interstate I-95 and is also easily accessible by Miami-Dade County public transportation (Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-Rail, and Metrobus).

Bayfront Park’s 32 acres of lush greenery includes a small sand beach, tropical rock garden and waterfall (dating back to 1926), playground, fountain, Light Tower, and many different monuments**. The park recently underwent a renovation of its baywalk. The baywalk runs along the edge of Biscayne Bay, throughout the park, and continues to Bayside Marketplace. Renovations include tree plantings, benches, removable chairs, bike racks, trash containers, pavers, and a re-working of a portion of the irrigation system. The renovations were intended to soften the edges of the park and create a more pedestrian friendly environment.

The maximum capacity of the park for special events can range from 20,000-25,000 depending on the event infrastructure. The most popular stage placements are on the Flagler Promenade and adjacent to the Biscayne Boulevard sidewalk.

Went for a Lauryn Hill concert (she sucked) but the actual venue was nice. Its outdoor and they had chairs for rent at $5 a piece. Food vendors are extremely expensive so come prepared.

Great place to see a concert. The sound here was amazing..the best bass I have ever experience in a concert.

I love concerts but don't get seats too close to either side of the stage. You won't see anything

It rained the whole time. They sold us ponchos and we bought fresh Arepas to keep us warm. The sound system is really nice, Switchfoot sounded even better than on the album. The Gate guard almost turned us away for my drawstring backpack, but was nice enough to help my fold up my towels and roll up my bag so I could just carry my stuff in.

This is a nice little venue for seeing outdoor concerts. Great vendors and adequate restroom facilities that are kept relatively clean. It would be nice to have more covered areas to view the stage from. We got rained on a few times but it was still a great night.
