A groundbreaking ceremony was held May 9 in District 12 for a new linear park, Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department reports.

The park will benefit Miami neighborhoods such as Doral, Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens, Medley, Sweetwater, and Virginia Gardens.

The ceremony’s attendees included Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, personnel from Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, and the public.

The under construction park, named FPL Linear Park & Trail, will be built on an underused green space at Southwest 2nd Street between 136 Court and 136 Place.
