Matheson Hammock is a 630-acre urban park. The park surrounds the north and western ends of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.
Matheson Hammock Park is a lovely scenic park with an artificial atoll pool, naturally flushed by the tidal action of Biscayne Bay. Its tranquil breeze-swept beach is a haven for families who enjoy its warm, safe waters and beautiful views. Matheson is also a prime spot for kite-boarding as its active breezes, and calm shallow waters make launching effortless.
The park also has a full-service marina, snack bar, and restaurant built into a historic coral rock building, picnic pavilions, and nature trails. Matheson also contains a sailing and power boat school.
