Prince Field Tot Lot Update

4/5/2016

The destruction of the Tot Lot on Prince Field has commenced.



As you probably know, the Tot Lot on Prince Field was a community project. The Miami Springs community rallied together about 20 years ago, donated money, donated time, donated labor, and built the all wooden structure.



The Tot Lot meant a lot to this community. It was beautiful. An all wooden structure playground that let the imagination of children go wild.

It was unique. There is no other tot lot like it in South Florida.

It was fun. Children would spend hours upon hours climbing up and down the tot lot. Playing hide and go seek. Pretending to be the kings and queens of the playground.

Unlike most municipal projects, the city didn`t pay for it. It was paid for by private donations and fundraisers. A real win win for the community.

AFTER:



PROPOSED:

At the last council meeting, the council voted 4 to 1 (Rosie Buckner voted no) to replace the tot lot instead of repairing it.

The new tot lot is estimated to cost $319,000 and will be built with plastic instead of wood. Below, you`ll find a a rendering of the new tot lot:

Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.

Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.

Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.

Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.

MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas.
