The City of Miami Beach held a ribbon-cutting at 85 Street and Collins Avenue last week to mark the completion of the newly refurbished North Beach Oceanside Park.
“These upgrades will give our residents access to incredible scenic and accessible greenspace,” said Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber.
North Beach Oceanside Park spans 28 acres from 87 to 79 streets along the beach, making it one of the largest green spaces of its kind in the city. The $15.8 million project included building an accessible community playground, upgraded dog park, all-weather fitness equipment and easy access Beachwalk.
The project has resulted in a net increase of 188 trees to the park and adjoining parts of the Beachwalk. It also includes new concrete pathways, additional landscaping, new signage, refurbished restrooms and picnic shelters, ornamental entrance gates, upgraded perimeter fencing, security camera infrastructure and turtle-friendly lighting.
