Senator Gwen Margolis Park Renovation Updates

Senator Gwen Margolis Park Renovations

Current Updates: Directional boring will continue during the week beginning February 6th. Work is proceeding on schedule with an expected completion date of February 21, 2023. Work will also commence on the replacement of the fencing. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we work towards making a better park for your enjoyment. 

The Senator Gwen Margolis Park soccer field is one of the most used facilities in Sunny Isles Beach.  The field is used by our extremely popular Youth Soccer programs with an enrollment of several hundred participants each year, as well as by park patrons on Saturdays and Sundays.

To provide a safe sports facility with ideal lighting for use during the evenings, the City of Sunny Isles Beach is installing state of the art Musco Sports lighting.

Musco is an industry leader in lighting, specializing in the design and manufacture of sports lighting solutions around the world.

The design for Senator Gwen Margolis Park features four towers using energy efficient LED lighting located around the perimeter of the field.

Through their innovative Total Light Control Technology, the lighting fixtures can be precisely aimed to create an even spread of light at an average of 30 footcandles over 133 specific points on the field while dramatically eliminating any impact to the surrounding neighborhood.

Installation of the new sports lighting system is scheduled to begin the week of January 16.  The construction work will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The installation is estimated to take approximately 5 weeks.

Closures During Installation

Because the safety for our residents and guests is of utmost importance, park amenities, including the sports field, playground, dog park and restrooms will be closed.  There will also be intermittent sidewalk and parking lot closures.

All Senior Programs scheduled for Margolis Park will be relocated to Town Center Park during the construction.
