New Water Park - Grapeland Park

We all know Miami is surrounded by water - and we also have some of the best beaches anywhere - but if you wanted to enjoy a nice waterpark, for a long time going up to Broward was your only choice - not anymore!

Yesterday we opened the City's first water park at Grapeland Park in Allapattah - it features slides and pools and other aquatic delights for children of all ages to enjoy - best of all, local artist Romero Britto designed all of the fixtures, so it's like swimming inside a work of art. The park is located at 1550 NW 37th Ave if you want to visit - and I included a picture of our lifeguards on duty at the park to make sure everyone is safe and having a great time.

This water park comes after years of Grapeland being neglected - in fact, when construction first began, we found that the park had been used as a dump ground for waste - we cleaned it all up and turned it into a signature park not only for the residents of Allapattah, but all Miami and all South Florida - Enjoy the water!!
