In 2018, the City Council unanimously voted to put out a referendum so that Doral voters could decide if they wanted to invest in parks. The decision was left to the residents and the majority of residents said “YES” to improving and building parks and recreational facilities! Several projects have been completed already for the enjoyment of the community with others currently in the works. Learn more!

It will be the hub of cultural and performing arts in Doral, and will be supported by satellite programming locations at both Doral Central Park and Doral Legacy Park.

The bike path system is currently being reassessed to honor the original intent, and properly expand with new bike paths in our community. This is important to continue promoting walkability and active lifestyle in our City, while also reallocating funds to light these paths for maximum safety.
Doral Central Park
Doral Central Park is located at 3000 NW 87th Avenue and is the flagship project of the Doral Parks Bond. This 78 acre park will be one of the largest parks in the region and include state- of-the-art amenities like an indoor recreational facility, and aquatics venue with a competition pool, practice swim pool, and recreational splash park area. Outdoor amenities will include walking paths, tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, multi-purpose fields, picnic areas and pavilions, skate park and pump track and sensory playscape/nature area. Additional activities that will take advantage of the lake are a wetland trail, canoe/(remove) kayak/ paddle boat launch, lakefront trails, and a lakefront promenade. The park will have a multipurpose lawn to serve as the city’s special-events hub with the addition of an open-air amphitheater.
Phase 4 (the final phase) will be completed by the end of 2024. This phase contains all the surface parking lots, and vertical construction components – aquatic venue and indoor recreation building. Additionally, the hardscape and landscaping is more dense in this area of the site along with more intersecting underground utilities. Planning, coordination and sequencing of work will take more time. This opens up the amenities of the west portion of Doral Central Park.
Mayor Fraga, with the support of the City Council, is currently reaching out to partners like Miami-Dade College, Miami-Dade County and the state, to acquire funding that will help us bring this regional projects to fruition, without burdening our taxpayers.
