This park is the main attraction in the Grove after Vizcaya, but sincerely not worthy. Nothing to see besides a small fisherman house ... At least you can walk in the mangrove. Not worthy

The Barnacle Park provides many Grovites and visitors a place of solace, as its tranquility and natural beauty captures you. The park unfortunately was hit by Hurricane Irma, but the community has rallied to bring the park back to its original state. Visit this historic...More

Nice place to see, not much time needed. It's part of Miami history, but don't expect to see something like Charleston or Savannah... If you are in Miami just for vacation, skip it.

Step off the Main Highway and as you walk through the hardwood hammock, leave the crowds, noise, hustle & bustle behind. A bit of old Florida has been preserved. Be sure to check out the boat being built using traditional boat building methods. The $2...More

This historic site is kind of hard to find, but if you are walking around Coconut Grove it's a leafy oasis in an urban setting which offers a glimpse into early Miami settlements, architecture and landscape. A very pleasant setting on the bay.

OK so personally - I liked the park and would rate it a 4 stars because I liked how secluded it was and quiet while being surrounded by bars and restaurants. However, I know that many people will visit and find that there isn't much...More

Sorry to say, but I did not find any exceptional in this park. It;s not bad, but there are much more beautiful places or historic buildings in Florida.

The walk up until you pay the $2 before you get in is lovely, with large trees and a quiet surrounding. After this, it's pretty much just an old house with a big garden. There's a nice view of the water, so it's nice to...More
