"The City of Doral has a proven history of providing high-quality parks and public spaces"
The City of Doral has a proven history of providing high-quality parks and public spaces, which when combined with Doral’s active and social population, result in high levels of usage. While positive, this increased level of consistent activation also results in an increased level of wear and tear on the equipment and facilities at existing park sites.
Safety + ACCESSIBILITY + USABILITY
With Doral’s population projected to continue increasing into the foreseeable future, strategic improvements to existing parks and facilities will be necessary to main quality of experience that Doral residents have come to expect. Many of these improvements will be focused on increasing the usability, accessibility, and most importantly, the safety, of Doral’s existing park sites.
Key Improvements at Existing Parks
Given their age and level of use, an increased level of focus will be placed on improvements to:
