We actually enjoyed this park; however, the owner is protective of his property. There are less then forty spaces in this tight urban park, and he does keep an eye on everyone and everything that goes on. Although he has a limitation on dog size, he did allow our border collie to stay. I'm glad she is well trained and was able to wait until we were outside the park as we were told to make sure of when she "did her thing." It was this monitoring that made it uncomfortable. My wife told me he must have passed by the laundromat three different times while our clothes went through the washers. I took over for the drying and didn't see him at all. All this being said the park is in great condition and looks classic Florida with the white wrought iron fence surrounding it. It is relatively near the police and fire departments so there is the sirens that you occasionally hear; however, I wouldn't say it's a lot more then most other urban parks. The area surrounding it, while urban, is well kept, and I never felt afraid while here. A well kept magnet school for the public school system is next door; however, other than recess I didn't hear the kids nor did I see them at all. This is strictly an older adult park. For us it was a good value that permitted us to explore the Keys and watch the annual Rodeo that is held next to the YMCA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
