When you thought Miami Beach couldn’t get much better, the city once again revitalizes itself and plans for a Greener Future with the addition of five (5) planned parks that will change the landscape of our beautiful and vibrant city.
The new Miami Beach Parks will provide over 20 new acres of green space and will include thousands of new trees, modern walkways, a pedestrian bridge connecting the bay to the beach, and a multi-million investment in public works of art.
Collins Canal Park will consist of 3.5 acres of green space adjacent to Collins Canal as part of the overall Miami Beach convention center project. The park will include sculptures and 580 new mangroves along the canal. Collins Canal Park is set to open late summer, 2019.
Pocket Park will be a smaller 9,400 SqFt installation with a tot lot for children and shade trees. Pocket Park broke ground on June 11th and will be completed in the fall of this year.
The future anticipated 5th & Alton park will forever change the landscape of Miami Beach. This 3-acre planned park with green space, dog park, children’s playground, and centerpiece walking bridge will connect the bay walk and beach walk by an elevated and architecturally stunning pedestrian bridge.
Pride Park is currently under construction on what was formerly a surface parking lot on the west side of the Convention Center. The park will have 5.8 acres with over 500 new trees, a Veteran’s Memorial Plaza, and open air space. Completion is scheduled for December 2019.
Par 3 Park will be the largest of the new green spaces in Miami Beach and will include 19.5 acres. The focal point of Par 3 will the a lake at the center surrounded by a boardwalk, 259 trees, 6 tennis courts, a children’s playground, and a dog park. Groundbreaking for Par 3 Park is scheduled for spring 2020, with completion in 2021.
Schedule to open in the fall of this year, the Miami Beach Convention Center surface parking lot (Lot P) will be transformed into a sprawling 5.8-acre park.
The Park was designed by Landscape architect West8 whose firm also designed the Miami Beach Soundscape in front of the New World Symphony and has the same feel with the geometric/organic shaped walkways as pictured above.
The park’s design allows for more open areas and less tree coverage in the center to accommodate the upcoming Design Miami which will occupy the park for two months every year once complete.
The park will feature 500 new trees, open lawn spaces, shade areas, walkways, lighting, a veteran’s memorial, public restroom facility, a flexible area space, and public art. The park will also afford the opportunity for future market stands, food kiosks, and concessions.
In addition to the existing 2.80-acre park on the north side, once complete the Convention Center will be home to 12-acres of new green spaces with 1,330 new trees.
Along with more Green Space, the city of Miami Beach has invested $7 million in artworks for the Miami Beach Convention Center.
