Cambier Park adjoins Naples Art Association. Denoted by its bandshell and tennis courts, Cambier Park is located just a block and a half from historic Fifth Avenue South, and is within walking distance of trendy European boutiques, aromatic sidewalk cafes and exemplary art galleries such as Sheldon Fine Art, Call of Africa’s Native Visions Gallery and Shaw Gallery of Fine Art. The show is also just three minutes by car from more upscale shops, restaurants and bistros and galleries and art stops in the Third Street South Gallery District and Crayton Cove.

Baker Park is the new hype in Naples. It is located on the Gordon River east of Tamiami Trail, where Central Avenue empties into Riverside Drive. The kayak launch, fitness facility and outdoor terrace open on March 14 and the remainder of the 15-acre park, including the main building and bike path, officially opened October 29, 2019. The park takes its name from Jay and Patty Baker; he was CEO of Kohl’s, she an award-winning Broadway producer.
