Located within the major metropolitan area of Miami-Dade County, residents of Bay Harbor Islands can avail themselves of almost unlimited choices of recreation and entertainment. Within the town itself, residents can also enjoy relaxing green space in two passive parks and if they have small children, a well-equipped Tot Lot playground is available. Older children can take advantage of an after-school recreation program which is held at the local elementary school and is partially funded by the Town.
Tennis courts are available for leisure play, private lessons, and summer tennis camps for children. The Town also provides, at no cost for its residents, a town picnic each March with entertainment and refreshments. In January of 2007, as part of the Town’s 60th Anniversary celebration, an annual 5K Run/Walk was conducted and is now the newest event sponsored by the Town.
In addition, the Town sponsors the Surf-Bal-Bay Police Activities League, which provides both athletic and educational activities for children. For additional information please visit their website at http://surfbalbaypal.org
