Arch Creek Park

Designated as a Florida State Historical Preserve, this small park is a living legend rich in history. The now extinct Tequesta Indians occupied the site from 500 B.C. to 1300 A.D. The park was created around a natural limestone bridge formation that was once part of an important Indian trail for both the Tequesta and Seminoles, and later used by the federal government as part of the military trail during the Seminole wars. The park has a museum containing fossils, artifacts left by natives, and other unique relics of early Miami. Miami-Dade Park's naturalists guide visitors through the park as they point out native birds, animals and insects and identify the variety of trees growing in the area.
