Big Pine Key Community Park
Big Pine Key Community Park is a Monroe county park located on Big Pine Key north of the Overseas Highway on the water. The park sits on the eastern shore of Big Pine Key near the Spanish Harbor. This beautifully maintained park has recreation for everyone from a skate park to shuffleboard courts! This park was truly designed for optimal use and with families in mind. The playground is completely fenced with benches around the perimeter for supervising adults to relax. The equipment is new and has much sought after swings. Paved paths wind around the different areas of the park making getting from one area to another quite comfortable and accessible. There are about 14 pavilions of various sizes located along that path and there are beautiful views of the water.
For sports enthusiasts, there is so much to do. Bocce and shuffleboard courts can be found on the south side of the park near the water. A Skate park lies right alongside 2 lighted tennis courts with bleachers. The center of the park holds a large open field which can be the perfect spot for flying a kite or a game of soccer. On the north side of the park is the softball field and Roller Hockey Rink/Basketball Courts. The handball/raquetball courts are just on the other side of the rink. The fitness trail can be found along the paved paths for those wishing to jog and stretch.
Big Pine Key Community Park Meeting Room is also located within the park and features a concession stand, restroom access, ample parking and 11,000 sq ft of space. It may be rented for an hourly rate for your next gathering. Other parts of the park may be reserved for a per person charge of $2 per person and additional cleanup fees.
