A group of activists tired of waiting for the county and the Miami Heat to create a long-promised public park behind AmericanAirlines Arena took matters into its own hands Saturday morning.
A little after 11 a.m., about 100 cyclists rode into Parcel B, a three-acre paved lot wedged between the arena and Biscayne Bay, equipped with sidewalk chalk, a rainbow parachute, bottles of bubbles and sports balls. Calling it “Dan Paul Park” — named for the late environmental and First Amendment litigator — attendees played four square, juggled and did yoga. The event was organized by Emerge Miami, The New Tropic and the Urban Environment League and saw about 130 people at its height.
