Biscayne Park

Biscayne Park, a tiny triangle-shaped patch of land in Northeast Dade County, is one of Miami’s best kept secrets. In 1931, there were some 85 homeowners in the quiet community, which was the third stage of a development called Griffing-Biscayne Park Estates. Both Miami Shores and North Miami, larger municipal neighbors to the north and south of Biscayne Park, grew out of the development. On June 16, 1933, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 267 creating Biscayne Park. The village is bordered on the north by NE 121st Street, on the south by NE 107th Street, on the east by West Railroad Avenue and on the west by Griffing Boulevard Biscayne Park may be best known as a speed trap to drivers along busy NE Sixth Avenue who ignore the, “Don’t Even Think About Speeding,” signs. And then there’s the lovely old Log Cabin at 640 NE 114th St. The Log Cabin was declared a historic site by the Dade County Historical Preservation Board.
