Miami-Dade officials unveil "Veterans Way"


Commissioners Javier D. Souto, District 10, and Jose “Pepe” Diaz, District 12, and the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department dedicated Veterans Way on Saturday, February 4, 2012, at Tropical Park, 7900 SW 40 Street, in Miami.  This connects visitors to the park’s existing Veterans Memorial honoring veterans of the United States Armed Forces for their service during time of war.

“Not many Tropical Park visitors were aware of the existence of the Veterans Memorial,” said Commissioner Souto. “That is until last year, when a young citizen Perry Adair of Boy Scout Troop 456 and Miguel Penton, a U.S. Veteran of the Bay of Pigs approached us with their initiatives to revitalize the site.”
