We opened Dan Paul Park – links to all the coverage are here

On Saturday, June 13th, 300 Miamians gathered to dedicate Parcel B – the plot of public waterfront land behind AmericanAirlines Arena that was promised as a park as part of the stadium approval deal in 1996 – as Dan Paul Park, in honor of the Miami-based lawyer and activist who worked to protect waterfront parks.  The event was organized by the UEL, Emerge Miami, and The New Tropic.  For the last 19 years, the county and the Heat have not kept their promises to open the park, so we – the community – have done it ourselves, gathering with picnics, games, and friends to enjoy the sunshine and the breeze.  The next stage is for the county and the Heat to take down the fence, remove the asphalt, and put in landscaping on our public land so we can all enjoy a beautiful waterfront park.

    Great collection of PR for Dan Paul Park!!!

    Now these 300 park advocates plus 300 more need to stage a sit in at County Hall and or at a HEAT game until the park is greened and protected forever as a park…..No more museums or valet parking lots on our waterfront!!!!
