Museum Park Miami

Museum Park Miami is a huge open-air municipal complex, spread out in the downtown archipelagoes (Miami city district, located in the US state of Florida). The recreation area occupies a space of 12 hectares, which is 12 thousand square meters.

His grand opening was timed to coincide with the two-hundredth birthday of the country's independence. A grand jubilee of the United States was celebrated on a large scale in 1976. In connection with this, the park is sometimes called the Bicentennial.

History of Bicentennial Park Miami

Initially, on the site of the park (1900s - mid-1960s), the Miami cargo and passenger terminal operated. Numerous cargoes, warehouses and office premises of the commercial enterprise Clyde Mallory were built practically on the whole island. Closer to the 1970s, the port changed its deployment, moving to the neighboring archipelago - Dodge Island. After that, the territory was thoroughly cleaned from the waste of industrial enterprises. And only after almost a decade, in 1976, Bicentennial Park was opened at this place. It is this name that the green recreation area of ​​the townspeople and guests of the city received at the opening.

After Bayfront Park, this is the second largest place in Miami, where you can spend a carefree weekend. The development of a recreational complex and infrastructure does not stand still. So, from May 1994, you can get here by metro (Museum Park subway station).

Real Museum Park Miami

Bicentennial Park is located in the center of Miami, south of I-395 and east of Biscayne Boulevard. The park is spread over thirty acres of the city’s highlands, including about 2,600 feet of the Biscayne Baywalk promenade and the FEC (Florida East Coast Railway) subway line overlooking downtown Miami, Port of Miami and Watson Island. The eastern part of the Bicentennial Park is washed by the waters of the Biscayan Bay. The patrons and patrons of the park are several public and utility organizations. Two museums and a planetarium are open near the park, which contributes not only to healthy outdoor recreation, but also cultural enrichment.

Why does the park have another name - Museum Park? The reason is simple: the Miami-Dade Cultural Center is located nearby. Exhibitions of the museum tells about the amazing history of the region. South Florida is a country of runaway slaves, Indians, gangsters, land invaders, pirates, tourists, drug dealers and alligators. Everything together is intertwined in a bright and exciting story, which covers the time frame from the first Aborigines to the latest waves of emigration.
