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.

Nice open Miami area to walk, picnic and enjoy the view. Parking can be a little hard when big events take place, but you can take advantage from the free metro mover loops and park at a convenient distance whit more available and cheaper parking.

Bayfront Park has a calendar so you can check out upcoming events. There are some classes like yoga and capoeira in the park. Sometimes they have big events which means the park won't be accessible without a ticket to that event or even accessible a few days before and after. It's a great outdoor space for large events and shopping and ports are nearby. Great pictures on the water. Must experience for events and non events because it's a totally different experience every time.
