John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is the nation's first UNDERWATER park! Formed in the 1960's, Pennekamp Park represents over 100 square miles of mangrove shoreline, grass flats, and of course our famous coral reef. Adjacent to Pennekamp (and extending it's boundaries out to international waters) is the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary. Both these pristine coral reef areas are protected by law against environmental abuse, guaranteeing this beautiful resource will last for many generations.
