Outdoor enthusiasts in the northwest part of the county now have their own park. Almost three years in the making, Doral Glades Park — with the only nature center in the area — gets a grand opening this month.
The celebration for the city’s first environmentally focused park is Aug. 2 from 6-8:30pm. Among the activities will be giveaways, a special screening of a nature-themed short film, tours and more.
Breaking ground in October, 2016, Doral’s highly anticipated ninth park features educational and wetland boardwalks and a viewing platform in addition to the nature center. Also within its 25 acres are such recreational facilities as tennis courts, multi-use fields, basketball courts, playgrounds, a lake with a kayak launch and a fishing pier, trails for walking, exercise and biking and picnic shelters.
Doral Glades Park is located on Northwest 74 Street between Northwest 97 and 107 avenues.
