Goals & Principles

A Vision as ambitious as the Miami-Dade County Parks and Open Space System can only be accomplished through the seamless collaboration of City, County, State, and Federal Park agencies working together to create a more livable Miami-Dade County through a vision that includes great parks, public spaces, natural and cultural areas, greenways, water trails and streets.


Every element of the County, including neighborhoods, parks, natural areas, streets, civic centers and commercial areas, should be connected without regard to jurisdiction.



Every public space, including streets, parks, plazas and civic buildings, should be designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, and to complement the natural and cultural landscape.




Every resident should be able to safely and comfortably walk, bicycle, drive and/or ride transit from their home to work, school, parks, shopping and community facilities.

Multiple Benefits

Every single public action should generate multiple public benefits to maximize taxpayer dollars.
