The Vision

The residents of Historic Washington Park have been anticipating the redesign and reconstruction of Washington Park for a long time. We are proud to deliver! The vision for the new and improved Washington Park Community Center is to be just as the name states “A Community Center”, inviting to all ages and walks of life. It is going to be an essential part of revitalizing the neighborhood for its current residents as well as inviting new people into a piece of North Miami Beach history.

The multi-purpose complex will be unified by closing NE 153rd Terrace between 14 and 15 Court. Providing resources to promote and engage the interests of all individuals will garner an inclusive environment. The available amenities as well as the adjustment to the park layout and increased available parking allow accessibility for greater accessibility for all patrons.

The City will work to ensure that the history of the Washington Park neighborhood is preserved through a Legacy Program which will allow families to have their names imprinted on the building façade or walkways.

The Community Center will be the first major park renovation of the 2000’s making it a gleaming sense of the City’s direction into the future.
