New Parks are Bringing Beauty to Your Neighborhood
Posted Date: 8/23/2017

A number of capital projects are underway bringing new passive parks to your neighborhood. Under construction are the Betsy Adams and the Coral Gables Garden Club Park to include sidewalks, amphitheater, playground and landscaping at 4650 Alhambra Circle. This park is named in honor of Ms. Adams, a civic leader and member of the Garden Club who over the last 56 years has organized several city entrance projects, the Merrick statue in front of City Hall, and the statue of Althea Merrick at the Merrick House.

Also underway are landscape improvements at a triangular passive park at 4600 San Amaro Drive named the Enrique “Henry” Cepero Memorial Park. Mr. Cepero was a longtime resident of Coral Gables and was an award-winning cancer researcher before he passed away at the early age of 33.

  • Catalonia Park at 807 Catalonia Avenue. Scope of work includes landscape beautification.
