The city of Miami is known for its nightlife and white, sandy beaches, but there's more beauty in the Magic City to be seen. Colonial Drive Park is one of Miami's best kept secrets. If a simple walk around the park is not what you and your family are interested in, how about a fun game of some sort? With basketball, baseball, football fields and a tennis court, there has to be at least one activity to motivate you to get out of the house on the weekend and enjoy yourself out about in the sun? One of the best parts about Colonial Drive Park is the water splash playground that can be a perfect spot for your family to cool down. Even if the adults aren't into the idea of getting wet on a hot, sunny day, it is always a pleasant to watch your children laugh and smile while enjoying themselves and having fun outside.
Another reason as to why Colonial Drive Park is the perfect family friendly attraction in Miami is because of its all year round programs targeted to the youth in the neighborhood. You will feel a deep sense of contentment and calm knowing where your child is going after-school, as well as during the summer. There are a number of Youth Sport Leagues to choose from such as baseball, football, cheerleading, softball, and basketball. Youth programs are an important aspect in communities where they build character in children. These activities help promote positive development and reduce risk behaviors like teen pregnancy, school drop outs, substance and alcohol abuse, and gang violence. So the next time you're thinking about a family outing, remember there is a perfect getaway a few minutes from your home. A place that doesn't cost you a penny for simply having fun with your family.
