25/06/2018 – MiamiHerald. / Five cities have teamed up to build a skate park at Haulover. The new recreation space is expected to open later this summer.
The mayors of Bal Harbour, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, Bay Harbor Islands and Surfside say the park will help get kids off the couch and moving outside.
The park, which cost $267,000 , will include combine a pump track for cyclists and a skate plaza, said Surfside Mayor Daniel Dietch.
Just as the park will encourage people in the community to come together, the planning and funding allowed different Miami-Dade communities to combine forces to see the project through. “This demonstrates to everybody else how communities can work together to bring projects to fruition,” Dietch said.
