The Greynolds Park has come a long way from its origins as a rock pit. These days, it offers nature trails, a fun-filled playground for the kids, fishing out of a rock quarry, picnicking, bird-watching, and the Greynolds Golf Course as well. Those who would like to get back to nature and learn more about the area's history, flora, and fauna can take a guided tour on Saturdays.
As a kid in the 1960s I grew up not far from the park. I used to hang out there, go to the Love Ins, walk the lake, up the hill, use the paddle boats... Years later when revisiting, I saw that some things had changed (where are the boats?) but that it still looked and 'felt' the same. Truly one of the best places in Dade.... Sorry to see the admission charge on the weekends, but I guess that's one of the things that have changed . . . well worth it though
This park has been a beautiful treasure of memories, Love, Joy & lots of fun for my children, family members & I. It is beauty untainted, with it's beautiful nature trails, fish, birds, turtles, racoons and gators. All this my children's eyes saw through their growing years. We rode our bikes, rollerbladed, and had countless nature walks there. My sisters & I would race to the bottom of the hill while our children rooted us on. You can't keep that innerchild in you from coming to life when you're there. We had many birthday parties through the years.
Yesterday, we had my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception at the lagoon pavillion facing the lake. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting. Greynolds saw my little girl turn into a beautiful woman. It is wonderful to know my children and their children will always have a special place to visit, and remember... Greynolds is truly a blessed ground.
I was reading the reviews, and they almost brought me to tears. I too love this park, I lived down the road at 181 st. and used to visit greynolds park every week with my little brother and parents, that was the last good memory we had together...anyways I hope this park is preserved forever..
BEEN HAVING BIRTHDAY PARTIES THERE SINCE WE MOVED TO NMB....AWSOME PARK.I LOVE THE VOLLEYBALL COURTS, THE PLAYGROUND FOR THE KIDS, THE TRAILS WE ALWAYS TAKE. LOVE THE LAKES...AND SIMPLY ENJOY THE OUTDOOR ENVRIONMENT IT PROVIDES.... ITS ALSO VERY FAMILY ORIENTED.
I actually had forgotten about this park for a while until I did one of those surveys for your friends and email them or post them. One question, "What was one of your favorite memories from Kindergarten". Greynolds Park just popped into my mind. I loooooooooooooooved Greynolds park as a child! It was our favorite place to go and our cousins too. Rolling down the hill was fantastic; hide and seek and chase around the castle was imaginative; climbing the MASSIVE mangrove trees was exciting and challenging; the paddle boats and house were tons of fun; feeding the ducks and minows was always the last thing we did. My memories of Greynolds Park: PRICELESS. As a family we couldn't get enough! I haven't been back in years, and although Kindergarten for me was the mid 70's, I still have the best memories just like all the others who posted here. Somewhere there are pictures of us in those trees that I have got to find. I hope it still holds the same magic after all these years.
My friends and I used to hang out here when we were growing up. There are so many nice and fun memories here. We would roll down the hill along with everyone else. Climb up to the rock castle. Loved the trees and ponds and bike rides. I have not been here in years but next time I go to Miami I am going to visit. I'm sure it is still nice and will bring back many wonderful memories of my childhood!
I JUST HEARD THE NAME TODAY AND HAD TO LOOK IT UP, I HAVE ALOT OF GREAT MEMORIES AT THAT PARK. I STILL DRIVE THRU AND SIT AT THE HILL WHEN I GO BACK TO NMB TO VISIT. THE WATER THE TREES ALL OF IT. I SURE DO MISS THE DAYS OF HANGING OUT THERE PLAYING FRISBEE WALKING THE TRAILS RENTING THE PADDLE BOATS....
I practically grew up in this park. I lived just down the road from it and spent a lot of time there. There are tons of nice benches away from the road to just relax on. I have seen aligators, but a very long time ago. By the west dixie highway entrance there are tons of turtles and tarpons that wait for people to throw bread to them (it is not allowed). we used to meet up every friday when I started working for happy hour until the guard would beep signalling it was time to leave. There are usually lots of kids rolling down the hill and people playing soccer by 22nd avenue. some nice bike trails for a quick mountain bike ride, not too strenuous. overall a very nice park that is a good escape from the traffic and crowds of north miami. I went there right before leaving to australia and had a barbecue with some freinds, still the same. I miss the Park!
My parents used to take me to Greynolds Park and I have so many wonderful memories of the place. I remember seeing so much interesting wildlife there that was fascinating to me as a child. I used to climb the rocks behind the mound and pretend I was on an adventure. I loved rolling down the mound, and of course going up to the "castle". The nature trails made me feel like I was out in the middle of the wilderness instead of in the middle of a big city. Now, 30 years later, I see the place has little changed, which is good. I recommend this park to anyone who wants to retreat from city life and enjoy the tranquility of nature.
I used to go there as a kid, when we lived in Miami.....it is so nostalgic talking about it. We used to feed the ducks in the pond. Go to the top of the rock castle and blow bubbles, roll down the big hill. It was so much fun. I think many kids would enjoy it.
