The Barnacle Historic State Park is a 5-acre property, which includes one of the oldest houses in the area and its surrounding grounds. The park gets it’s name from the house itself, which is called The Barnacle and was built in 1891. It was the home of a pioneer of the county, Ralph Middleton Munroe. The house offers stunning views of the bay and the grounds offer a nice spot for a picnic. Several musical concerts, plays and events are held on the grounds of the park, which are sponsored by The Barnacle Society.

We saw a haunted ballet after dark here and it was fantastic. I've never been during the day.
It a small but a clean and beautiful park with polite and informative staff!
A hidden gem of a park in the heart of Coconut Grove. A great spot to stop by during a scenic bike ride thru area.
Beautiful Park,the historic place with a lot of tropical hardwood hammock around and the great view to Biscayne Bay,nice tour in the cozy house,staff very cool special the range/gift shop guy .I like the big pavilion for rent with a moderate price for all kinds of occasions with 50 guest max but No alcohol
Nice place to visit, the view is beautiful!!! I recommend you the tour inside of the house, very interesting and well narrated and explained by this less young nice man. It is a grate miracle that this please has survived as it was.
