Parks At Our Door: Planning Miami-Dade’s 21st Century Park System

Parks At Our Door: Planning Miami-Dade’s 21st Century Park SystemTuesday, April 12, 10am-5pm - Miami Center for Architecture & Design, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami

Representing the voices of thousands of participants in hundreds of meetings over three years of development, the Miami-Dade County Parks and Open Space Masterplan addresses the interconnectedness of life, and the potential for parks to provide an infrastructure that builds individual, community, and ecological resiliency and well-being.

The drawings illustrate a shared vision for an integrated system of great parks and public spaces, natural and cultural areas, all linked across the region through greenways, waterways, complete streets and sidewalks. Three fundamentals guide the plan: placemaking, health/fitness and conservation/stewardship.

Most importantly, the plan establishes a process of inquiry designed to support ongoing exploration to address the challenges and opportunities of the future, while preserving the significant ecological and cultural legacy of one America’s largest and most diverse park systems. For additional information and/or questions contact Miami CAD via email [email protected] or call 786-361-1207.
