Time capsule unveils women’s accomplishments
The Women’s Park is recognized as the first landmark park dedicated to the women of Miami-Dade County. The ceremony took place at this landmark park on Wednesday, 22nd March 2023, at noon.
Mayor Daniella Levine Cava expressed her gratitude to be part of this ceremony. She also said that these artifacts also remind her of the contribution of women trailblazers of Miami who paved the way for all the women today. She also recognized their contribution to improving the quality of life for the entire community.
While talking to the audience, she also encouraged them to view this historic collection of artifacts that will be displayed at the landmark park’s gallery. The Women’s Park History Gallery will display the collection that the audience can enjoy.
Time capsule idea for women’s history month
The Founders Committee of The Women’s Park conceived this idea to collect and display women’s contributions in the form of a time capsule. The purpose is to document women’s status during the 20th century.
The former Miami-Dade County Mayor Stephen P. Clark made the resolution over 31 years ago to name the site The Women’s Park and display 300+ artifacts, documents, and photographs in the time capsule.
The works of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Lydia Cabrera, and Lady Barbara Bush’s work are also included in the time capsule.
Parks Director Maria I. Nardi also emphasized the significance of this event as a way to remember the past as well as envision a bright future. This collection will allow people to learn about the common bond they share, noted the Park Director.
