William J. Matheson was one of the greatest aristocrats to ever live in this fair state. In his undying love for the nature of South Florida, Matheson and his family donated the land for Matheson Hammock Park, as well as Crandon Park, which combine for nearly 1,450 acres of what Matheson described as “wild and natural beauty” (miaminewtimes.com). The Matheson Hammock Park opened in 1930 that features the man-made atoll pool, beach, marina and boat launch. The man-made pool is perfect for kids to take a splash and the water is flushed naturally with the tide of nearby Biscayne Bay. There are lifeguards on duty for the safety of beach goers. The adults will be swept away with the tranquil breeze-swept beach while enjoying the beautiful view. Nature trails, kiteboarding, kayaks and standup paddleboards will also be enjoyed for adventure seekers on the shallow waters of the beach. The nearby Bayside park is among the famous marinas in Miami and enjoy the tropical hammocks. Have a unique dining experience at Red Fish Grill at the park’s pavilion with a menu of fresh seafoods, pasta, chicken and steak. Picnic in the park is also an option. The park has a pavilion and smaller pavilions with charcoal grills, picnic tables and benches for picnic and shade. The Matheson Hammock Park is also a perfect place for special events such as wedding, birthday and any celebrations.
