In My Mind's Eye
Bill Baggs State Park takes in the southern tip of Key Biscayne, just south of downtown Miami. The 400 acre park is named for William C. Baggs, Miami news editor who lead the campaign to save Key Biscayne from development. This popular get-away features picnic and swimming areas along a mile long beachfront that was voted one of the top ten beaches in the United States, in 2005. Anglers also enjoy some of the finest shoreline fishing from the park's seawall. One of the oldest structures in Miami-Dade area, dating back to 1856, is the park's outstanding landmark. The Cape Florida Lighthouse, damaged by Hurricane Andrew, was newly refurbished in 1996, just in time for Miami's centennial celebration.
