Matheson Hammock County Park & Marina is one of the best places in Coral Gables to admire the view of Biscayne Bay.

The park is located at 9610 Old Cutler Road in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, FL 33156. To reach the staff by phone, call 305-665-5475.

Visitors are welcome at Matheson Hammock from sunrise to sunset every day of the year. The park office hours are from 8 AM to 5 PM.

The fees for entrance into the park are $5 per car, $12 for a trailer, and $10 for an RV. Renting a picnic shelter costs $160 for a maximum capacity of 100 people.

The most unique feature of this park is a man made atoll pool that is naturally flushed with fresh salt water by the tidal action of Biscayne Bay.
