NEW: 2014 Miami Springs River Ride

Bring your own kayak, canoe, or paddle boat and ride down the Miami River as we bring back the River as part of the River Cities Festival.


Unload your kayak, canoe, or paddle boat (NO POWERBOATS!) near the cat walk across from the dog park on Royal Poinciana Boulevard. You can park your car or truck at the dog park parking.

At noon, we'll take a leisure paddle along the Miami Canal. Along the way we'll stop to take pictures, wave at passersby and view Miami Springs and Hialeah from a different perspective.

Starting near the catwalk / old boat ramp, the floatilla will continue east towards the East Drive / East 4th Avenue Bridge. We'll do a u-turn and return back to catwalk / boat ramp near the dog park.

- Catwalk
- Pedestrian bridge on Canal Street


Every participant must bring their own kayak, canoe, or paddle boat. No powerboats. Everyone must also bring their own life jacket. Each participant is responsible for his / her own safety.

This is a public waterway and the festival and the city are not responsible for your safety.

The date / time of the River Ride is subject to change without notice. Please check back as we get closer to the date.

RSVP on Facebook today.

Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.

Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.

Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.

Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.

MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas. Forum posts and Individual comments posted on MiamiSprings.com do not necessarily represent the opinion of MiamiSprings.com, its owner, or its advertisers. MiamiSprings.com encourages you to post your opinions and interact with the MiamiSprings.com online community.
