Miami puts Marine Stadium flex park in spotlight
Written by Miami Today on September 14, 2018
The City of Miami is hosting a community meeting to discuss the design of Marine Stadium Flex Park from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Miami Rowing Club.
The flex park is slated to be a new multi-use park that includes passive recreation, green space, waterfront access and special event use.
At the open house, the public will have the opportunity to bring suggestions and weigh in on the following future design principles which include: A park for all; one island, one park; uniquely Miami, authentically Virginia Key; never the same park twice; park as spectacle; fitness hub; resilient park; and “a place you want to be.”
The city has launched an effort to restore the famous waterfront stadium on Virginia Key, and to develop the flex park land that surrounds the concrete structure. The city-owned stadium has been closed since 1992’s Hurricane Andrew.
The meeting will be in the second floor ballroom at the Miami Rowing Club, 3601 Rickenbacker Causeway.
