Client: Town of Miami Lakes
Services: Parks Master Plan

The Town of Miami Lakes has, for many years, been committed to improving and expanding the public park amenities available to its residents.

MCHarry Associates was engaged to analyze the feasibility and implications of expanding the facilities at Park East in a fashion which will compliment the Town’s consolidated recreation program, taking into account the Park’s inherent limitations, community expectations regarding development impact on the park, land use and building code constraints, and compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood.

Facilities at Park East include a one story park administration building with toilet rooms; an open air playground with fabric canopy; a picnic pavilion; a skate park facility; surface parking lot accommodating 18 cars.

The 6,000sf youth center program was judged to be most responsive to the collective interests for overall park development.
