The Village of Palmetto Bay announced on Apr. 12 that Miami-Dade County had approved plans for the village to create a “linear park” on the county-owned two-and-a-half-acre property at the intersection of SW 140th Street and 77th Avenue.

“As the mayor of the Village of Palmetto Bay, I am writing to express our heartfelt gratitude for the support and collaboration we have received from the Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners regarding the development of Tanglewood Linear Park,” said Mayor Karyn Cunningham. “The unanimous backing for this project in committee underscores our shared commitment to enhancing community well-being, promoting environmental stewardship, and fostering a legacy of inclusion and sustainable urban planning.”

During an earlier county commission committee meeting there had been some concern about the property, which has an FPL easement, being sold to either Palmetto Bay or to a private developer. The Apr. 12 meeting apparently resolved the issue.

“The vision for Tanglewood Linear Park is ambitious yet grounded in the collective aspiration of our residents for a greener, more vibrant community space,” Mayor Cunningham said. “This park is not just an addition to our landscape; it is a pivotal step towards redefining our relationship with nature and each other. By transforming county-owned parcels along 77th Avenue into a sanctuary of greenery and recreation, we are setting a precedent for how communities can thrive when public interests are placed above private gains.”

The village’s intent for the Tanglewood Linear Park:
● A communal hub for recreation and relaxation, offering amenities such as walking paths, playgrounds, and picnic areas that cater to all ages and interests.

● Environmental conservation. By preserving this land, safeguarding the local ecosystem, promote biodiversity, and contributing to the global effort against climate change.

● Tanglewood Linear Park represents a wise investment in the community’s future, promising returns that extend beyond mere financial gains.

“We recognize that the success of this project hinges on our ability to listen, adapt, and collaborate. To this end, we will engage in ongoing dialogues with our residents, seeking their input on enhancements and features that will make Tanglewood Linear Park a truly exceptional space for all,” the mayor said.
