Biscayne Park Real Estate Information

Biscayne Park, Florida, is located seven miles north of Miami, in Dade County on Route 1 just south of Route 922 (NE 125th Street). Founded in 1933 by property developer Arthur Griffing, a key figure in the settlement of the North Miami area, the village has maintained a stable population of near 3,000 (2,991-2009 census) and its quiet charm. Biscayne Park is a diverse community, whose multicultural residents come from Colombia, Cuba, Peru and as far away as Lebanon, bringing unique interest to village life.

Most of Biscayne Park's homes are in fully built, mature neighborhoods. People know their neighbors here, and many are singles who commute to their jobs in Miami or other nearby cities. There is also a growing population of young married people here, whose children can attend a wide variety of public and private schools.

Elementary students attend William Jennings Bryan P.S. (PK-5), Miami Country Day School (private, PK3-12), or Bethany Covenant, a Christian non-denominational school (PK-5). North Miami Middle School and Thomas Jefferson Middle School serve students in Grades 7 and 8, while the public high school is North Miami Senior High School, all within five miles of the village. Barry University is the nearest post-secondary institution, while Miami-Dade College, University of Miami, and Florida International University are within a 20-mile radius.

From June to August each year, residents' children participate in the Biscayne Park Fitness Connection Summer Camp at the Ed Burke Recreation Center. Nearby Bicentennial Park hosts concerts and special events year-round. The Intracoastal Waterway, on the east side of the village, features water sports of many kinds. Drive across the Broad Causeway on 125th Street for easy access to the Atlantic Ocean beaches at Bal Harbor, Surfside and Indian Creek.
