About Oleta River State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Fall is here, the weather is changing and school is back in session. While the rest of the country is preparing for the upcoming winter, we are still enjoying beautiful days and warm temperatures here in South Florida. It is the perfect time to enjoy getting outside and renting a kayak, canoe or standup paddleboard from the park’s concessionaire, the Blue Moon Outdoor Center located in the park. You might also enjoy a bike ride through one of the park’s 14 miles of off-road mountain bike trails or over 3 miles of paved trails.
Join a Park Naturalist at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday or Sunday for a free, guided, one-hour walk through several of the park’s unique natural communities and learn about the park’s history, ecosystems, plants and animals. It is not uncommon to see Florida’s state butterfly, the zebra longwing or hear the call of a red-bellied woodpecker. If you are lucky, you might get a glimpse of the endangered atala hairstreak butterfly or see a magnificent frigatebird flying overhead. Comfortable walking shoes, drinking water, sunscreen and insect repellent are recommended. Tours begin at the east side of Parking Lot 8. For additional information, please call the Ranger Station at (305) 919-1846.
For those who enjoy fishing, we have a fishing pier and several miles of the Biscayne Bay shoreline available for your enjoyment. Fishing gear and bait can be purchased at the Blue Moon Outdoor Center located within the park. For fishing regulations visit http://www.myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/regulations.
On behalf of the entire Oleta River State Park staff, we welcome you to come out and enjoy this little piece of paradise and serenity within the heart of North Miami Beach.
Oleta River State Park is located at 3400 N.E. 163rd Street, off I-95 in Miami.
