Wainwright Park is located just south of South Beach near the Rickenbacker Causeway. It’s amenities include a playground, shelters, basketball courts, and plenty of room for the children to roam The park is separated from the water by a retaining wall so swimming is not a possibility but the views are breathtaking.
