Miami Beach Getting New 19.4-Acre Park After Voters Approve Funding

Miami Beach’s former Par 3 Golf Course will be converted into a public park after voters approved issuing bonds that will fund construction.

The park will span 19.3 acres.

$15.7 million of the $439 million in bonds approved by voters last week are set aside to build the park. Environmental remediation is also planned, since the land has been found to be contaminated with high levels of arsenic.

A preliminary plan prepared by Savino Miler Design Studios shows that the park would surround a lake. There will be walking trails, a dog park, butterfly gardens, gardens, play areas and several parking lots.
