To meet the growing demand for recreational facilities the
Park and Recreation Department is expediting the installation of new and better recreational facilities.




  • Miami-Dade County maintained approximately 5.2 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents over the last three years. As the population grows, the County is meeting the challenge of providing sufficient park land for residents. 
  • Last year, 9,744 children attended summer camp programs, a 16.7 percent decrease from the previous year. The Park and Recreation Department offers activities such as sports, fitness and health, arts and culture, swimming lessons, nature, and leisure access programs. 
  • The Cultural Affairs Department's Culture Shock Program provided 
    2,342 eligible students with affordable access to cultural events and performances -- an increase of 29 percent over last year. 
  • The Opa-Locka Library, the second of 10 new libraries scheduled to be constructed by the year 2011, opened in Summer 2007. Other new branches in the works are International Mall, Kendall Lakes, Naranja, Pinecrest and Merrick Park.
