Westbrook Park’s new lights will brighten evening strolls


(MIAMI, FL) – Residents soon will be able to enjoy well-lit evening strolls in Westbrook Park thanks to plans for 61 solar powered LED lights to be installed along the inner and outer loops of the park’s 1,200 linear feet of walkway.

Miami-Dade County District 10 Commissioner Senator Javier D. Souto will join the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department to unveil signage for the walkway lighting project on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 10 a.m. The park is located at 1325 S.W. 103rd Place in Miami.

“These new solar-powered lights at Westbrook Park will not only be environmentally friendly, but they will also visually enhance the park and allow residents to enjoy its amenities after dark,” Commissioner Souto said.

Installation of the new lights, which will be raised about 40 inches above the ground, is expected to begin in July 2014. Funding for the $270,000 project will come from the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program.
