The public square of the park is named after the editor of the local newspaper Miami Times, which was highly active in the middle of the last century. He struggled to preserve the priceless nature of the tropics of Florida, and he managed to leave a mark on US life.

Bill Baggs supported and defended Key Biscayne's first conservation interests in order to save the southeastern part of the island from large real estate development. He put his soul into what is now called nature, protecting the safety and purity of the archipelago.

Bill Baggs State Park in a sunny city is a concentration of values and events. During each tour, guides tell interesting stories and facts not only about the founder, but also about all the events of that time that touched Bill Baggs Park.

On the shore of the park, old huts have been preserved, which have been under the protection of a historical association. They were built during the war years, but despite such a short value, they are still very important for the park and Florida as a whole.

Station for the oppressed slaves and the old lighthouse in Miami

An underground organization was also located in the parkland through which oppressed indigenous peoples and slaves of African descent could hide from persecution. Then they were redirected to the Bahamas and other free islands.

In one corner of Bill Baggs park is the oldest lighthouse in Miami and Florida, as well as one of the oldest buildings in the entire county. It was erected almost 200 years ago, and during this period he witnessed almost all wars and events, and during the years of the great civil war he illuminated the path of ships seeking to break through the Yankee blockade. Over such a long period of time, the lighthouse in Bill Baggs Park has been restored many times.

Today you can visit it at any time of the day, excursions begin twice a day and last from Thursday, on Wednesday and Tuesday the lighthouse does not work.
