Grand opening of new Skate Park and Pump Track at Haulover Beach Park, August 7

The Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department and Miami-Dade County District 4 Commissioner Sally A. Heyman will officially open a new 7,500 square foot hybrid skate park and pump track at Haulover Beach Park, 10801 Collins Ave., Miami. The public is invited to join them for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m.

The new fee-free skate park and pump track are located adjacent to the park’s dog park parking area.  It combines a separate skate plaza and bicycle pump track, providing a place for people of all ages to enjoy free-wheeling fun on their skateboards or bikes.

Everyone is encouraged to bring along their skateboards and bicycles, and have some fun! Helmets are required. For those attending the ribbon-cutting, who may not own a skateboard, Commissioner Heyman’s office is donating new skateboards for the occasion. The free skateboards will be available, while supplies last.

“I’m excited and pleased to see an idea be brought to reality with great partners and community collaboration,“ said Commissioner Heyman. “Adding skateboard and bicycle activity to this great park will attract more people to come and enjoy our park.”

“This new state-of–the-art skate park and pump track gives skateboarders and bike riders an awesome space to hone their skills, surrounded by the beauty and amenities of our world-renowned Haulover Beach Park and Marina,” said Maria I. Nardi, Miami-Dade Parks Director.

This skate park and pump track were developed and funded in collaboration with the following municipalities:  Sunny Isles Beach, Bal Harbour, Bay Harbor Islands, Miami Beach and Surfside.
