Tropical Park Stadium is a 10,000-seat stadium located in Olympia Heights, Florida, a CDP near Miami, Florida. The stadium is located in Tropical Park and was the home field of Miami FC of the United Soccer Leagues. Many local high-school football teams use it as their home field.

The multi-purpose stadium features an athletics track, and a grass field used for soccer, American football, rugby, and other various sports.

Tropical Park hosted matches during the 2006 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup.

There's talk[by whom?] that one day, this would be the future home of the Miami Hurricanes Football team with a new stadium on the footprint.
