Arch Creek Park Self-Guided Tour
Arch Creek Park is a natural area preserved and managed by Miami-Dade County DERM’s Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program. The EEL Program was created to acquire, restore and manage natural areas to conserve the county’s endemic and diminishing native habitats for the enjoyment of current and future generations.
A small park with a large and significant history, it was created around a natural limestone bridge formation that was once part of an important Indian trail. Arch Creek, a body of water which historically flowed from the Everglades eastward into Biscayne Bay, is believed to have first been used by the now-extinct Tequesta Indian tribe and later by the Seminoles.
