Grapeland Heights is a neighborhood in the city of Miami, Florida, United States. It is just east of Miami International Airport and north of Miami's West Flagler neighborhood. It is primarily a single-family residential neighborhood with a significant maritime industry along the neighborhood's eastern end along the Miami River.
In May 2008, Grapeland Water Park opened alongside the Melreese Country Club. The Grapeland Water Park is the first water park to open in Miami. The park is the largest city park in Grapeland Heights, and has proved very popular amongst young Miamians. In June 2011, it received national recognition from the City Parks Alliance chosen for its excellence in design and innovation.
