MiamiHerald / The Miami Children’s Museum , which occupies public property on Watson Island, has asked the City of Miami for more land to create a new entrance and expand its facilities.
The popular educational attraction wants to take over a vacant lot that sits just outside its main entrance and add the parcel to its long-term, $2-a-year lease with the city. The scruffy lot, which is just over half an acre and includes several trees, is not assigned to any adjacent projects or enterprises, which include the stalled Island Gardens resort and a seaplane terminal.
In the short term, the museum would spruce up the property, add benches for picnicking and turn it into an inviting new entrance, said director Deborah Spiegelman.
“It’s right outside our front door, but it’s incredibly blighted and neglected,” Spiegelman said. “We want to turn it into more of a green space and picnic area.”
