Our Favorite Greenspaces in the Neighborhood
We know that our name might signify our affinity towards the creative world, and although that is definitely true, that doesn’t mean we’re not inspired by all kinds of catalysts for connection. We wholeheartedly believe that in order to build a long-lasting sense of community in a neighborhood, you must have ample greenspaces and parks for people to congregate, relish in good weather together, and be active in their city. Here’s a list of our favorite parks within walking distance of Filling Station Lofts and Canvas:
Hidden behind the heavy history of the City of Miami Cemetery, Biscayne Park is a long stretch of greenspace that spans nearly four blocks and is usually bustling with soccer competitions, runners, and bootcamp classes. On a sunny day, it’s a simple place to get a good sweat in, or you can always make your way to the cemetery for a little slice of our past.
Margaret Pace Park
One of the largest parks in Miami, Margaret Pace is probably our favorite on the list. Embraced by paths and boardwalks that weave in and out of the coast along Biscayne Bay, the views are breathtaking at any time of day. If you catch the park at around sunset, you’ll be in awe of the hoards of active residents partaking in all kinds of athletic classes, Basketball competitions, and children taking advantage of the huge playground.
This one also has unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay, and hugs the PAMM and the soon to be opened Frost Science Museum (hence the name). The home of the Miami Science Barge, Museum Park boasts beautiful paths shaded by palm colonnades for a perfect running course option in the heart of downtown Miami.
One of the oldest on the list, Dorsey Park has been the home of many a child’s baseball dreams coming true. Tournaments and competitions are all the rage here, and in the summer it plays a key role in keeping kids active with trainings. A big baseball field takes up most of the park, but there’s still ample room for a greenspace hang with your furry friend.
