On May 4th, Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez, City Council, staff along with Kaufman Lynn Construction and Waypoint Contracting, Inc and Chen Moore and Associates, broke ground on the Doral White Course Park project. The park is scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2022.
Doral White Course Park, located at 8429 NW 41st St., Doral, will include shaded playground, a waterfront event plaza, outdoor fitness stations, a multi-purpose green space area, fenced-off dog area, restrooms, and shelters.
The park will also have landscape lighting with general overhead and walkway lighting and security cameras.
“This new park is a great addition of open green space for our residents to enjoy with their families,” said Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. “Doral White Course Park will also connect to Downtown Doral via a new boardwalk to increase walkability in the heart of our City which continues to flourish with beautiful homes, top-rated schools, and diverse dining and shopping.”
The City received this land in 2016 for public recreational use as part of the Master Development Agreement for Downtown Doral South. Prior to the City receiving the park land it was the site of the former Doral County Club’s White Course Golf Course.
The design of the park and the amenities included addresses the community’s needs as identified in the Parks System Master Plan through community surveys and several community workshops that gave residents the opportunity to provide feedback. Following that process, the Mayor and City Council unanimously agreed that the residents should decide the future of our parks. Residents ultimately decided that they wanted projects like this to continue improving their quality of life. Doral voters approved the Doral Parks Bond, November 2018, which includes Doral Central Park as well as several other high priority park improvements in the City.
