Little Havana Barrio Party on 5th

Little Havana Barrio Party on 5thSaturday, February 8, 2pm-6pm – Jose Marti Park, 321 SW 5th Street, Miami
Join your Little Havana neighbors for the first of many Barrio Parties on 5th. Help kick off and celebrate SW 5th Street’s recent designation as a Play Street as part of Transform 5th.

The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area. #Transform5th @urbanimpactlab
