The park will memorialize the 9/11 tragedy created from one of the last remaining steel beams unearthed from the ruins of the World Trade Center, donated to the City of Miami by the Port Authority of NY and NJ.
The dedication ceremony, which will run from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, will feature an honor guard comprised of City of Miami Police and Fire department officers. Commissioner Sarnoff plans to acknowledge several community leaders who helped make the 1814 Brickell Park a reality, key among them Miami real estate developer Tibor Hollo and his wife Sheila, whose charitable foundation donated $250,000 to acquire the park land.
The dedication ceremony is free and open to the public. We encourage those who plan to attend to come via the new City of Miami Brickell Trolley, which has a regular route that stops in front of the park (more info here!). The family park includes lush landscaped areas, an elevated central grass court and a fenced-in children’s play area.
