It showcased the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces 50-year plan for connecting Miami-Dade County communities. Using parks, public spaces, natural and cultural areas, greenways, waterways and streets to bring people and parks together, the plan helps to solve some of our city's most pressing problems.

The Summit highlighted innovative planning designs, current trends in the field of planning and experts from around the country shared ideas and best practices in the fields of parks and recreation.

Compelling speakers and interactive sessions focused on the three pillars of Parks: Placemaking, Conservation, and Health and Fitness.
