Parks

Today, the waterfront property just north of Miami City Hall is a vast landscape of
asphalt. The Harbour will rip that out, transforming the entire site with an emphasis on
lush landscaping and open spaces. All existing large trees will be preserved, particularly
the signature banyan, which will anchor a new park. Banyan Tree Park will be a
significant one-third acre in size, a passive area for relaxation and recreation. Plantings
will feature species native to Florida and dominant in Coconut Grove, creating a greener
and shadier experience, and building materials and pathway pavers will use coral rock
and other natural materials. Other than the footprints of the new restaurants, the new
boat racks and the two hangars, one-half of the remaining property will be public, open
landscaped areas.
