The 3-acre Canopy Park is now nearing completion at the entrance to South Beach, new photos by Ryan RC Rea show.
The new park will include a botanical garden, dog park, and fitness area. There will also be an event lawn surrounded by native trees, an art pavilion, and a Monstrum-designed kids zone.
The park will be connected by a pedestrian bridge to the baywalk and beachwalk.
Developers agreed to build the park in exchange for the right to build the tallest building in South Beach, known as Five Park
The Five Park tower is also now rising. It will reach a height of 44-stories, or 546 feet.
ArquitectonicaGEO is the architect of the new park.
