Every weekend, through April, Homestead invites its residents, neighbors and visitors to explore Everglades and Biscayne National Parks and Homestead’s Bayfront Park with a free guided trolley ride from Historic Downtown Homestead. The free trolley will run through April 26, 2015.
The City of Homestead, recently designated as the “Gateway to Everglades and Biscayne National Parks,” created this program to offer free public transportation to Everglades and Biscayne National Parks by expanding its already successful local trolley service. In addition, both Everglades National Park and Biscayne National Park have partnered to offer free park admission to those on the National Parks Trolley.
The trolley runs from Losner Park to Everglades and Biscayne national parks, Anhinga Trail, Homestead Bayfront Park and Biscayne National Park to Downtown Homestead.
There are several free Saturday and Sunday Park programs at Biscayne National Park including a two-hour canoe/kayak trip, a jetty walk, kids’ activities and a porch talk along with monthly Sunday Family Fun Fests.
At Everglades National Park you can walk the Anhinga Trail, do the Glades Glimpse and learn about the wonder of the park with a ranger or spot gators along the Anhinga Trail in the Gator Spy program.
At Homestead Bayfront Park, located next to Biscayne Park, enjoy the atoll pool and beach, picnic area, playground, fishing area and grills.
The trolley depot is at Losner Park, 104 N. Krome Ave., Homestead, FL. Call 305-224-4457 for more info.
