Located just south of Pinecrest and directly on Biscayne Bay, Palmetto Bay is one of the top family-oriented communities in all of Miami. This small but vibrant village offers highly regarded public and private schools, beautiful parks, and a myriad of shops and restaurants along its US-1 corridor – all at a more affordable price than almost any other town with comparable amenities in the Greater Miami area.
Coral Reef Park, an impressive 50-acre park filled with trails, volleyball courts, canals, playgrounds, and tennis court, is a big draw for people from the community and beyond. Locals are proud that this is one of the most vibrant, tropical green spaces in Miami.
One of the most popular neighborhoods in Palmetto Bay is located just west of the park. Mangowood evokes an earlier era – as you enter under the ‘Mangowood’ sign you’ll most likely see children playing or walking to the nearby park and parents chatting with one another in the streets. If you’re looking for the perks of suburbia (land, quiet, and a true community feel) without leaving Greater Miami, Palmetto Bay is worth exploring.
“Palmetto Bay is truly a ‘hometown’ with it’s own identity, all within the larger context of Miami. Some of my favorite childhood memories come from growing up in this community. For me, life revolved around our home in Mangowood – backyards were playgrounds for all the neighborhood kids and Coral Reef Park was the hub for activities of all kinds. And now, with kids of my own, I love that we can continue to experience the fantastic lifestyle Palmetto Bay has to offer…outdoor Movie Night at Coral Reef and long bike rides along Old Cutler Road, to name a few favorites. Palmetto Bay offers a friendly, low-key lifestyle adjacent to top-notch amenities, shops and resources along the US1 corridor.”
