A fantastic family friendly neighborhood, located south of downtown Miami, Palmetto Bay is the area east of US1 from SW 136 Street to SW 184th Street east to Biscayne Bay. It’s lovingly nicknamed the “Village of Parks” as a result of the 6 park facilities offering recreation activities and preservation of the natural environment. In addition there is a brand new neighborhood library.
