The three-acre park, located between the 600 and 700 blocks of Alton Road, will include open green-spaces shaded by native tree species subdivided into a botanical garden, dog park, fitness area, event lawn, art pavilion and kids zone designed by Monstrum, and public art displays. Canopy Park will be connected to the South of Fifth neighborhood and the Miami Beach baywalk via a new pedestrian bridge over I-395 that will create a safe and seamless connection running from South Pointe Park north to the Lincoln Road District and east to the beachfront.
The design of the project coincided with the completion of the ULI and Harvard research reports relating to the issue of sea level rise. Miami Beach sits at the epicenter of the discussion regarding sea level rise. This project is intended to show how resilient a community Miami Beach can be. The park itself becomes that example, with Landscape Architecture as a green resiliency solution.
Canopy Park will include a flood protection basin, a native planting palette, berms, green roofs and a pedestrian bridge which will be very important for Miami Beach in the future. This park will be the most resilient project ever built in a coastal community anywhere up and down the eastern or western seaboards.
