RPCVSF  Goes  to the Beach

Saturday, June 17, 2023

We're going back to the Beach (our 3rd Annual!).  Join RPCVSF at Crandon Park to enjoy a picnic, the beach and other activities at the park, or just relax and chat with old and new friends.  Bring your family! And we just learned that recent PCV inductees may be there!!!

Details: We have rented a Shelter on North Beach from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  The grill will fire-up at 12:30 for lunch.  Use the shelter as long as you want between those hours.

Bring a dish to share and a beverage* for you.  RPCVSF will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, requisite buns, condiments, charcoal for the grill and grilling utensils.  There is no electricity or running water at the shelter, but there are restrooms nearby and outdoor showers available.  You can bring a lawn chair to relax or for more elbow room if the picnic tables are in heavy use.

Traffic:  Well, it’s Miami and it’s the Beach and it’s June so probably there will be many other cars with you.  You might avoid the peak beach traffic if you arrive in the morning and leave before 6 p.m.  

Directions: Follow signs to Rickenbacker Causeway and pass through the toll gate (Sunpass or Toll-By-Plate).  Continue to Key Biscayne until you see signs for Crandon Park.  Turn left at the North Beach Entrance into Crandon Park (opposite the golf course on the right).  The Shelter is in Mahogany Grove Picnic Area.

Parking: $7 per car (Pay by Phone app)

*Prohibited by the park:

Alcohol (except canned beer)

Glass containers

Styrofoam of any kind (coolers, cups, plates)



Flotation devices on the beaches

More information about the park activities and history:

Biscayne Nature Center is also at the north end of the park (  Walk there from the picnic shelter.  The museum and gallery are free and open 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Beautiful unpaved nature trails run from BNC to Bear Cut (between Key Biscayne and Virginia Key).

Below is a photo from a picnic a few years ago.
