The City of Miami Beach held a groundbreaking ceremony last week to mark the start of construction on the $42.8 million Bayshore Park, which will feature a passive park, playground, an outdoor amphitheater and six lighted multipurpose tennis and pickleball courts.

“We continue our march to create the most beautiful and unique open spaces in the world. What has been a barren lot for years, will now became a center of community activity to be enjoyed by all,” said Mayor Dan Gelber.The project also includes a dog park, jogging trail, pathways, boardwalk, pavilion, Vita Course and fitness cluster, butterfly garden as well as a linear water feature.

“Bayshore Park will be an incredible new gathering place for our residents and visitors to enjoy with their families while also being a model of sustainability and environmental stewardship,” said Miami Beach Commissioner Alex Fernandez.

Resiliency improvements planned for the project include a central lake with circulation and an ozone water treatment system along with a lake overlook and stormwater infrastructure to collect and retain a portion of the stormwater runoff from the surrounding area.

Bayshore Park is expected to be completed by fall 2025.
