Let’s Build a New Park Together!
The City of Sunny Isles Beach is in the early stages of planning to build a new park underneath and adjacent to the William Lehman Causeway. We are working with the talented professionals who are building The Underline from Brickell to Dadeland underneath Metrorail. Our residents have a dire need for more team sports and other recreational facilities. The Lehman Causeway underpass and adjacent city-owned land present an opportunity to provide these amenities to our community.
The City is still in the early planning phase for this new park. A critically important component of conceptualizing the final plan is to ensure robust and inclusive input from our residents. The City sent out a survey asking residents’ opinions about what additional recreational facilities you would want in the city. If you have not already done so, please take a moment to complete the survey below.
Sunny Isles Beach can pay for this park outright because of record reserves and solid finances. But we will be seeking grants and sponsorships to offset costs. Additionally, this new park will not prevent us from building other recreational and cultural facilities or upgrading existing ones.
We Want Your Input
In September, we held an Informal Town Hall/Charrette Design Meeting to collect feedback from residents. At our first meeting, many thoughtful questions were asked and creative ideas were shared. On October 6, we kept the momentum going with a second Town Hall at the proposed site for the UnderPark – getting a feel for the potential of this innovative space. We hope you will continue to join in the conversation as we work to build a new park together.
