Discover History in the Grove

Coconut Grove is all charm, largely do to some of its more hidden gems. Tucked away, just steps from CoCoWalk, is Barnacle Park.

Coconut Grove is all charm, largely do to some of its more hidden gems. Tucked away, just steps from CoCoWalk, is Barnacle Park. Embrace the escape with a self-guided tour along the tree path.

 

If history is your thing, you’ll enjoy learning more about Ralph Middleton Munroe, whose home, which was built in 1891, is the oldest in Miami-Dade County. You will also learn more about his love for sailing and the sea, with replicas of his many nautical creations such as the Egret and King Fish.

 

For us, the highlight of Barnacle Park is its beautiful bayfront location. Whether is through volunteer programs like the Boathouse Maritime Program to Movies in the Park during the summer, there is always a new way to enjoy the park.

 

And, for those after Munroe’s own heart, the park hosts Washington’s Birthday Regatta, which officially kicks-off regatta season each year with twelve traditionally historic boats. And, if that isn’t enough, it’s a great place to be during Miami Sail Week.

 

So whether a seafarer, or landshark, it’s a Grove must. Take a tour, or learn more: https://thebarnacle.org/

But, enough is enough! We’re here to take back our well-deserved weekends – by redefining what Sunday stands for.
