Parks and Open Space Master Plan

Community Leisure Interests Survey

The purpose of this Community Leisure Interests Survey is to provide a comprehensive, statistically valid measure of citizen usage, satisfaction, needs, unmet needs, priorities, and other services to assist in short and long-range decision making in coordination with Strategic Business Plan development.

Through the Parks Window

Miami-Dade County is facing the same population growth issues as many other metropolitan areas, a diminished quality of life, increased congestion, declining recreation and conservation open space, visual blight, limited transportation options and social inequities.

With the population expected to increase to three million residents in the year 2025 and up to 4.5 million by 2060, additional pressure will be placed on an already stressed physical, social, and economic environment.


This Parks and Open Space Master Plan envisions that great parks, public spaces, natural and cultural areas, streets, greenways, blueways, and trails can form the framework for a more sustainable community.

Such a plan for the public realm cannot be considered as an isolated system, but one that is integrated into the overall fabric of the community and one that will create the kind of place where residents want to live, employers want to do business, and tourists want to visit.

The goal of this Master Planning process is to “create a seamless, sustainable system of parks, recreation and conservation open spaces for this and future generations."
