A.D. Barnes Park is a 65-acre park nestled in the heart of one of Miami’s busiest areas. The park is home to The Sense of Wonder Nature Center and Trail set within one of the few remaining Pine Rocklands in Miami-Dade County. As a result, it has become an “oasis” for migrating birds and, according to the National Audubon Society, is one of the best places to see birds in Miami. The Nature Center is also home to the Miami-Dade Fire Department’s Anti-Venom unit’s reptile collection. It also offers free or low-cost special events & nature study programs for the public. Whether it is snakes, birds, swimming, or just a day enjoying a sun drenched picnic, A.D. Barnes Park offers something for everyone! Details of amenities include: Eight-station nature trail; Bird & wild animal sanctuary in 15 acres of native plants and trees; Guided tours, Fishing lake, playground, jogging trails, picnic shelters, and restrooms.
