Park Description

Castellow Hammock is a 112-acre park and preserve that contains a mature tropical hardwood forest with a half-mile self-guided nature trail.  The park was named in honor of James S. Castellow, a citrus farmer who homesteaded the property in the early 1900s. 

In 1974, the park became one of the first environmental education centers in Miami-Dade County and is popular with birders, butterfly watchers, and botanists.  The park serves as a wonderful place for city dwellers to get close to nature and rejuvenate the spirit.
