CHERRY Ideas for Kids on South Beach

June 27, 2012

Visitors to South Beach often reserve boutique hotels on Ocean Drive or lower Collins Avenue that don't offer all of the amenities of a full service resort. Many of these updated Art Deco properties were built before vacationers demanded the luxuries of Olympic-sized swimming pools and lavish spas. Newly renovated and popular for sun seekers who want to be within walking distance to South Beach nightclubs, restaurants and top shopping on Lincoln Road Mall, guests to these unique hotels can find fun for the entire family utilizing day passes at local pools, booking spa appointments that include full run of the larger resorts or visiting Flamingo Park's public swimming facilities and toddler play pool.


The Flamingo Park Toddler Play Pool is ideal for younger travelers who can appreciate the safety of a zero to 15 inch depth and the great times inspired by the brightly colored water features designed by Miami's own Aquadynamics Design Group. The state-of-the-art aquatics facility also offers a marked lap swimming pool for adults interested in fitness plus 5 20-foot sunbrellas for lounging safely in the Florida sun! Discover the fully-stocked concession stand, locker rooms and shower facilities that make it easy to plan the perfect family splashdown in the heart of South Beach.

Flamingo Pool is located at 12 Street and Michigan Avenue and offers an array of learn to swim and water safety programs for children and adults. Staffed by lifeguards certified by the American Red Cross, the pools are clean, safe and fun. Daily fees are FREE for locals with valid ID and just $6 for non-residents under 18 and $10 for non-resident adults. Waterproof diapers are required for babies. The pool is closed on Tuesdays.

General Admission 6:45am-9pm
Water Playground 9am-7pm
Lap Swim only 6:45-9am and 7-9pm
Note that the pool closes on holidays at 4:30pm Nov 24, Dec 24, 25, 31, Jan 1 and July 4
