The Shops at Midtown Miami, 3401 N. Miami Ave., has announced the opening of M Park, located at the center’s central round-about near Nordstrom Rack and West Elm.
The new park consists of two areas: an open grassy space with tables and benches for relaxing and events and an enclosed playground for kids. The playground is designed for children ages 2-12, consisting of four separate play structures for visitors to enjoy. The play structures feature multiple levels with climbers, slides, rock walls, cargo climbing nets and monkey bars under integrated sail shades. The two sides of the park, connected by a large Gumbo Limbo tree in the center for shade, are surrounded by artificial turf.
“We are excited to welcome the community to the new and improved M Park in the heart of Midtown Miami,” said Richard Forrest, vice president of property management. “There was a need in Midtown for a beautiful green space for locals and visitors to stop by, recharge and let their kids play. The Community Development District worked hard to transform M Park into a premier destination for fun, creativity and relaxation for the city of Miami. We are excited and proud to share it with our neighbors and shoppers.”
An official grand opening event for the community and local dignitaries is slated for Saturday, Aug. 21.
M Park will be a destination for local events, as well as a location to relax and enjoy a picnic with food from one of The Shops at Midtown Miami’s many restaurants. The park will have a maximum estimated occupancy of 210 people.
The Shops at Midtown Miami is a 645,000 square-foot retail property located at N. Miami Avenue and NW 36th Street. The Shops at Midtown Miami features the largest critical mass of value-oriented retailers in the City of Miami. The center has helped spark the revival of the Midtown district by creating a link between the Design District and the Wynwood Arts District. The Shops at Midtown Miami is situated near the convergence of I-95 and I-195, just west of Miami Beach and north of Downtown Miami.
