While summer is over, doesn’t mean the fun has to be! Head over to the newly inaugurated Doral Glades Park for an experience like no other. This is Doral’s first environmental park and only nature center within Northwest Miami-Dade. The state-of-the-art facility, an homage to the unique environment of the Florida everglades, was partially funded by a grant in 2008 from the Florida Communities Trust’s Florida Forever Program in the amount of $3.6 million.
The 23-acre facility, which was completed on schedule and under budget is located at 7600 NW 98 Pl. and is centered on a lake and wetland. Amenities include: tennis, basketball and sand volleyball courts, kayak launch, community/nature center and an educational boardwalk.
This park is special to me, not only because it honors the historical ecology of Doral and South Florida, but because the project itself has a long history dating back to 2006 during my first term as Mayor. I’m proud of the work we did at that time, collaborating with the necessary parties in order to acquire the land for this beautiful park that families will enjoy for many years to come.
