The sweepstakes ran on the Miami-Dade Parks website July 1-29. Winners were picked in a random drawing, from more than 1,476 entries.  

Miami-Dade Parks held its sweepstakes in conjunction with the 31st annual National Park and Recreation Month celebration of the National Recreation and Park Association’s (NRPA) initiative to encourage people to re-discover how park and recreation facilities have the power to transform lives with fun fitness, sports and nature-inspired activities. As part of the local observance, Miami-Dade residents were encouraged to get out and visit the county’s more than 270 parks and attractions spanning 13,573 acres. This included social media participation with park patrons sending in selfies illustrating their love and support of parks using the hashtags #LiveAParkLife and #SuperJuly. 

Miami-Dade Parks is a world-class parks system supported by the Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade and focused on Placemaking, Health and Fitness, and Conservation and Stewardship.
