About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Martí Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.
Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Martí Park area. Learn more at transform5th.com
