The bond funded projects include Doral Central Park, White Course – Walk to Park, Morgan Levy Park, Doral Meadow Park, Trails & Tails Park and Cultural Arts Center. Park improvements consist of green spaces, nature areas, sports fields, play areas, infrastructure, an aquatic facility, community center, multi-purpose rooms, cultural amenities, walking/biking trails, specialty recreation areas, and safety features. The Parks Bond Program will also fund the addition and renovation of a 5-mile multi-purpose trail throughout the city and an elevated pedestrian bridge passing over NW 41st Street along NW 117 Ave.
This Program’s marquee project program is the 82-acre Doral Central Park, which will be the largest park in the city. The Park will include an indoor recreational facility, and aquatics venue with a competition pool, learn to swim pool, splash park and lazy river. Outdoor amenities will include meandering walking paths, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball/softball diamonds, picnic areas, skate spot and pump track and sensory playscape area. Additional activities that will take advantage of the lake are a wetland trail, canoe/ kayak/ paddle boat launch, lake front trails and a lake front promenade. The Park will have a formal events lawn to serve as the city’s special-events hub with the addition of an open-air amphitheater. All new vehicular traffic pathways, parking and normal and special occasion lighting and landscaping will also surround the park.
