    Outdoors @ FIU

    Florida International University has a beautiful campus that provides many opportunities to enjoy the out-of-doors once you get outside of your classroom, the library, GC, or your residence hall room. In addition to recreation facilities like the tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, the pool, outdoor basketball courts, and the Recreation Field, there are a number of other areas to consider.

    Outdoor Sculpture Park

    FIU is the site of the Martin Z. Margulies Sculpture Park, one of the world's most important international outdoor sculpture collections that include works by Calder, de Kooning, Nevelson, Serra, Dubuffet, and other well-known artists. Guided tours are available to groups (coordinated through the Frost Art Museum), or just walk your own tour.

    The University Park campus is adorned with both natural and man-made lakes and ponds that attract a wide variety of wildlife. Catch early morning flights of birds, the open wings of an anhinga, and late afternoon mating calls. Many of these campus environs have gazebos nearby where you can sit and watch nature's interplay.
