Bring your dog. It will save you some money. Seriously. East Greynolds, operated by Miami-Dade County, serves as a dog park, and the normal fee for us human types is $7 per car. If you have your dog with you, the fee drops to $2. Canines, however, are restricted to a fenced-in area where they can run and play, while the rest of us can use the other park facilities.

Greynolds is split in two, with a golf course on West Dixie. The eastern portion of the park sits on Lake Maule and the remnant of the Oleta River. Oleta River State Park is just to the south. There are mangrove forests on the watery eastern edges of the park that attract a variety of wading and shore birds. There is a platform where you can fish or just take in the scenery. The thing that stands out is the sign warning that crocodiles — yes crocodiles — are present. We saw none, however.

There's also a protected hardwood hammock on the portion of the park that borders Biscayne Boulevard predominantly filled with gumbo limbo trees and other tropical hardwoods, including poisonwood. Parking is plentiful and there are restrooms (though closed because of plumbing issues when we visited and portables were being substituted).
