Miami Lakes Bridge Park
Miami Lakes Bridge Park is a proposal submitted to the Town of Miami Lakes for the revitalization of a 30-acre site and abandoned bridge that traverses the I-75 highway. The project aims to create a social landmark for the town while reinforcing connections to the surrounding neighborhood.
The park is conceived as a series of linear experiences that reveal themselves to the user as they ascend to an elevated bridge. A tree-lined green corridor equipped with social seating elements functions as a connector between two communities, Miami Lakes and Hialeah. Bridge Park will feature a series of passive and actively programmed spaces including amphitheater seating areas for performances, open lawns for outdoor community events, overlook areas that offer expansive views toward the town, learning gardens, and play areas. The horticulture comprises of hardy lush native trees and grasses that require minimal maintenance. Lou Arencibia was the Lead Designer and Project Manager for this project while at Land Collective.
