Suniland Park is an active ten-acre park with multipurpose athletic fields (baseball and football), batting cages, a recreation center, basketball courts, a Wi-Fi Spot in the gazebo, and a tot lot. In 1916, Miami-Dade County purchased a five acre parcel called Rock Pit #21 and, in 1938, added 3.5 acres and dedicated the land for park use. On September 8, 1962, the county officially agreed to develop the property with athletic facilities including baseball and football fields and basketball courts and the modern-day Suniland Park was established. In 1999, the facility was deeded by the county to the Village of Pinecrest. The park was completely redeveloped during 2002-2003. The $1.6 million improvements to the park included a new building and gazebo, enhancements to the basketball courts and fields, a new jogging/walking path, and lighting upgrades. In 2010, the VIllage Council designated Field #2 as "Andre Dawson Field" in recognition of the long-time Pinecrest resident's induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 2011, Field #1 was designated as "Howard Palmetto Hall of Fame Field" in recognition of the organization's 50th anniversary.
