The greater Miami area has summer-like weather all year-round! Instead of experiencing all four seasons, Miami affectionately has a wet season and a dry season. The summer and fall months tend to be more wet and humid with hurricane season bringing more rain and storms than other times of the year. Winter and spring months tend to be more dry, with little humidity but still plenty of heat and sunshine! Locals are likely to bring out jackets if the temperature ever drops below 60.
For a downtown, urban area, there are a good number of greenways located in the boundaries of Brickell. However, the neighborhood is mostly artificial.
The boundaries of Brickell include Miami River to the north, the Miami South Channel to the east, Rickenbacker Causeway to the south, and Interstate 95 to the west. US 1, also known as Brickell Avenue, is a major roadway that goes through Brickell. It is often congested and highly-trafficked, so pedestrians and pups may want to avoid this road!
Simpson Park, originally known as Jungle Park, is the largest greenway located nearby. This almost eight-acre park is a natural preserve with fifteen endangered and nine threatened plant species. There is a nice pathway through the park if you and your pup are looking for a more natural escape for the hustle of downtown Miami. Brickell Key Park, located on Brickell Key, is another decent-sized park in this area.
Nearby, you will also find Alice Wainwright Park, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, Triangle Park, and Riverside Park. Thankfully, the nearest dog park is actually a dog beach! Only two miles away on the causeway leading to Virginia Key, you will find a small, dog-friendly beach - Hobie Island Beach Park - where your pup can frolic in the waves!
