Oleta River State Park
Welcome to Oleta River State Park
30 minutes from downtown Miami, this gorgeous park is bisected by its namesake waterway that breathes life into this spectacular natural oasis of hardwood hammocks and mangroves.
Those weary from the stress of the city can recuperate in one of the picnic areas or unwind at the end of a fishing pole. For the more active, you can bike on 15 miles of trails or take a kayak down the short, but peaceful Oleta River.
Although it offers a variety of recreational opportunities, the park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails, ranging from novice trails to challenging trails for experienced bicyclists.
Along the Oleta River, at the north end of the park, a large stand of beautiful mangrove forest preserves native South Florida plants and wildlife. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle the river to explore this amazing natural area. Swimming from a 1,200-foot sandy beach and saltwater fishing are also popular activities.
Picnic tables and grills are available. One large picnic pavilion and eight medium pavilions can be rented for a fee. The large picnic pavilion, White Ibis, has electricity.
