Historic Little Hamaca Park

Little Hamaca Park

Little Hamaca Park… hmmm, this is NOT a place for the entire family especially if you have children. It sits on the eastern part of the island adjacent to the north fence of the Key West International Airport.

Little Hamaca Park consists mostly of salt ponds as noted in the park sign to the left “Key West Salt Ponds” along with a mere 2 or 3 picnic tables and a partial bike path engrossed in overgrown trees and shrubs. It is however a PERFECT place to go cycling for that early morning workout with no traffic what so ever to contend with. It’s not a beautiful park nor is it full on family friendly things to do… but what it is filled with is a part of our nations National Security History!

If you’re a history buff like I am or a nature buff then this is a place for you… but not your family which will probably be bored senseless! You can find this park on the southern side of Flagler Ave about 2 or 3 miles down from its eastern end.

Now the HISTORIC part! Future blogs will go in detail on the historic tie between this park and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Remember, this is one GREAT place for HISTORY buffs but NOT for families!
