Biscayne Park is a triangular-shaped residential neighborhood just north of Miami Shores. Founded in the 1920’s by Arthur Griffing, who was the landscape architect for the famous Carl Fisher, this area has been one of Miami’s best kept secrets. To locals, the area is known for being quiet with zero tolerance for cars speeding through busy NE 6th Avenue, and that was evident with the town’s “Don’t Even Think About Speeding” signs.
In the 1920’s, Griffing acquired land along Dixie Highway, originally being used as tomato fields. Griffing soon decided to start to develop homes on the land. His vision included landscaping throughout the neighborhoods to resemble a lush, botanical garden and a safe, family-friendly feel. Griffing even tried to lure in young buyers with cul-de-sacs, parks for children, and hand out his famous strawberry shortcake to potential clients. His vision was to create a safe neighborhood to appeal to the numerous families relocating to Miami.
Following the Great Depression, the City of Miami voted to give up its jurisdiction in 1931, and in 1933, town residents renamed the city to the Village of Biscayne Park. Today, there are about 3,200 residence that call the Biscayne Park home. The public schools, depending on the zoning area, are Miami Shores Elementary, W.J. Bryan Elementary, North Miami Middle School, and North Miami Senior High, along with many private schools in close proximity for residents. The town itself is close to Interstate 95, about 20 minutes from the nearest public beach, numerous restaurants and shopping centers, and has a small town feel that is family friendly right on the outskirts of a major city.
