On Wednesday of last week, July 28, Aventura Marketing Council/Chamber of Commerce and Commissioner Sally Heyman put together a day of fishing at Haulover Park for several special-needs organizations and their families/caregivers with Miami police officers! Proceeds from the event benefit these local charities, and THERAPY-IV is proud to have been able to partner with them!
Haulover Park is a historic county park, open to the public since 1948, designed by William Lyman Phillips, the architect who also developed Matheson Hammock Park, Crandon Park, Greynolds Park, and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens. There, you can rent boats since the area is known for Miami deep sea fishing. You can also rent boats for recreational and relaxation purposes. The Bark Park is the park's dog-friendly area that comes with a large stretch of shade, with play areas for both large and small dogs. If your dog loves to play in the water, no problem! You can take them to the off-leash dog beach between lifeguard towers two and three.
The nearby beach (Haulover Park Beach) is the one-and-a-half-mile beach just north of Miami Beach, sitting between the Intercoastal Waterway and ocean, making it a great place for Miami fishing! It is noted mostly for its particularly blue water and recreational areas. Notable activities are:
Nine-hole golf course
Kite vendors that are perfect for flying on the beach with a spectacular view of Biscayne Bay.
The beach is also wheelchair accessible and has wheelchairs for rent. It is easily walkable, with pedestrian tunnels linking the park and a marina on Biscayne Bay. Parking is also free.
