Tropical Park was purchased by Miami-Dade County in 1976 and covers 275 acres in Unincorporated Miami-Dade County.
In recognition of its historical tie to horses and the horse-racing industry, today Tropical Park houses the Ronald Reagan Equestrian Center.
The Ronald Reagan Equestrian Center hosts more than 36 shows a year, and has two grass courses, plus seating for approximately 1,000 persons. At the heart of the facility is a promenade and 3 state-of-the-art show arenas. A full-service equestrian facility, it has 267 stalls available for rent to competitors, recreational vehicle hookups, restroom facilities and concession stands.
The Mary Abreu Community Center is a facility uniquely located to serve the cattle and equestrian industry. The Abreu Center has 4,320 square-feet of meeting space, seats up to 250 people and has a small kitchen, an outdoor grilling area, restrooms, and parking. Podiums, stages, sound systems and assorted meeting equipment are available for rental.
Together the Abreu Center and Ronald Reagan Equestrian Center create 150,000-square-feet of exhibit, competition and performance-ready arenas under 3.6 acres of covered roof.
Tropical Park includes an Environmentally Endangered Land (EEL) Pine Rockland, which is a globally CRITICALLY imperiled habitat.
Less than 2% of the original Pine Rocklands remain today, outside Everglades National Park. It is exceptionally diverse, and known to support native plant species, which are in turn complemented by high animal diversity.
Facilities: Tropical Park houses 12 lighted wheelchair accessible tennis courts and 4 racquetball facilities. It also features a dog park, baseball fields, basketball courts, a track, football fields, nature trails, picnic shelters/pavilions, playgrounds and soccer fields.
