We are proud to announce the Grand Opening of Hialeah’s Garden of the Arts! The design of the Garden of the Arts transforms an underutilized transmission corridor into a lush outdoor museum featuring art installations from world renowned artists as well as a 1/2 mile walking trail, a garden amphitheater with elevated stage, and rollings hills of tropical and native plant species. The opening was held on September 25th and was presented by the City of Hialeah Mayor, Carlos Hernandez.

In 2011 C+R was asked to study the US1 Corridor paying particular attention to the underutilized land under the existing metrorail. Our team felt strongly that we needed not only to enhance the land under the metro, but envision this space as a new urban multiuse park traveling the length of US-1 from Brickell to Pinecrest and beyond. After all, there are shiny new parks in city’s popping up all over the world revitalizing urban space attached to existing and old transportation networks. The Highline by JCFO being the most prominent example.

C+R is proud to unveil our design for this new park in Hialeah, Florida! Hialeah Cultural Park is envisioned to be a lush tropical park tucked into a quiet urban community. The neighborhood has little to no existing public space amenities, so the City of Hialeah working with FPL (Florida Power and Light) found a creative way to provide much needed green space. The land, donated by FPL, is an existing FPL transmission right-of-way currently not accessible to the public. Our design team including engineers RJ Behar and Associates worked with FPL to create a park which fits the functional requirements of a transmission right-of-way while providing a meandering path through rich vegetation for people to stroll and learn about the rich history of Hialeah.
