Moore Park Rededication

On January 6, I was joined by Orange Bowl Committee members Danny Ponce and Eric Poms, James and Gerry Moore, Lee Corso and Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford in rededicating historic Moore Park. The park, site of the original Palm Festival, which would eventually become the Orange Bowl, has been an important part of Miami’s community for over seventy-five years.
The $2.5 million gift from the Orange Bowl Committee will go a long way to aiding in our plans to revitalize the park, which will feature new track and football facilities, including a 1,500 seat stadium. I would like to thank the Orange Bowl Committee, and all those involved for their continued support of the City’s investment in its communities.
