History [ edit ]
In 1933 A. O. Greynolds donated the tract of land, originally used as a limestone quarry, to Dade County. The park was developed between 1936 and 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps as a part of the New Deal public works program.
In 1979, the Youth Conservation Corp constructed the Oleta River Nature Trail and wooden footbridge on the shallows of the Oleta River through the mangroves.
Facilities [ edit ]
The boathouse features a nature exhibit and offers interpretive programs including guided (or unguided) nature walks, lectures, campfires and more. Kayak, canoe and paddleboat rentals are available on weekends and holidays.
