Park Information

The history of this place originates in the seventies of the last century. Then, in Broward County, John W. Lloyd, who served as a lawyer, was involved in environmental activities. So, he defended the plot of land, which later became part of the National Park. The efforts of the nature conservationist were not in vain: in 1973 the state bought the area of ​​117 acres. Then it was transferred to the authorities of Miami to organize a large recreation area here.

John U. Lloyd Beach State Park received the name of its founding father only 4 years later - in 1977. Then a solemn ceremony was held at the Park. However, his transformation did not end there. After some time, the zone has grown with new areas. For the John W. Lloyd’s Park, nearly 200 acres of land was acquired, after which its total area became 310 acres, stretching along the coast.

July 1, 2016, this park was renamed the State Park. Dr. V. D. Mizell and Eula Johnson in honor of two people who fought for the rights of people with “different” skin color. These people were not allowed on public beaches, and the main task of Mizell and Johnson was to open access to public places in Miami.
