Park Number: 46/59
First Visited: May 22, 2015
Sometimes, unfortunately, when visiting a park, there are limiting circumstances that are out of your control. For example: I’ve been told Biscayne is an incredible place to visit, with vibrant coral systems and enchanting sea life, but this all, of course, requires aquatic access. When planning my time at Biscayne, however, I learned they had a dispute with their concession company, meaning, until the matter was resolved, there would be no boat tours, kayak or canoe rentals, or trips out to the keys.
When I got to the park I was limited to the visitor’s center and a short coastal walk; everything remarkable about the area was inaccessible to me. What I did see was the Miami cityscape to the north, a factory spewing air pollution to the south, and a dirty diaper littering the side of the trail.
In regards to experience, this is the most disappointing park I’ve been to thus far. Hopefully a future revisit will change that.
