One of the first parks in the nation to be dedicated to women, The Women's Park stands in recognition of the diverse contributions women made to improve the quality of life in Miami-Dade County.
This 15-acre lakeside park offers a walking path to visitors, the Leona Ferguson Cooper playground for children, the Roxcy O'Neal Bolton Women's History Gallery with displays on prominent women in history, a picnic pavilion and the Gates and Fences Project by Miami artist Lydia Rubio. The Gates and Fences Project, completed in partnership with Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs' Arts and Public Places program, exemplifies the strength and power of women and recognizes their contributions in making our community a better place to live.
A time capsule was buried in December 1992 at The Women’s Park as part of the official dedication ceremony of the The Women’s Park. It contained hundreds of items celebrating the work and accomplishments of the women of Miami-Dade County, such as writings from environmental activist and author Marjory Stoneman Douglas, African American author Zora Neale Hurston and Cuban anthropology Lydia Cabrera. Among these treasures are tape recordings, newspapers, photographs, artwork, books and historical mementos from significant women in government, medicine, the arts, law, journalism and other professions.
On March 22, 2023 the time capsule was unveiled at The Women’s Park, in celebration of Women’s History Month. This event recognized and celebrated the contributions of women in Miami-Dade County, by revealing the contents of the time capsule.
