Crandon Park offers a diversity of activities with world class amenities, which consistently results in this beach park receiving a top ranking.

The park's two-mile beach is one of the most popular recreation destinations in all of Miami-Dade County, both for residents and tourists alike. It features top-ranked beaches and pristine water that's perfect for families, individuals, and friends.

Amenities and park facilities include a marina, a golf course, a tennis center, a family amusement center, picnic shelters and a nature center. Part of the park is also set aside as the Bear Cut Preserve, a designated natural Environment Study Area, but guided tours through the preserve are available.

The Crandon Park Tennis Center is home to the annual Sony Open tournament that's in March. And the Crandon Park Golf Course puts it among the top 50 public courses in Florida.

Located at the north end of the park, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center, also known as Biscayne Nature Center, is located at the north end of Crandon Park. It's a not-for-profit organization dedicated to environmental education and the encouragement of greater citizen participation in the protection of our natural environment. The center features natural history exhibits, demonstration lab classroom facilities, and an audio visual presentation room.
