The Bayfront Park project in Miami Shores Village aims to enhance the public waterfront area along the Biscayne Bay Intracoastal waterway. The park currently faces challenges such as flooding during the rainy season, which makes it inaccessible to visitors and causes saltwater intrusion into the storm drains. To address these issues, the Village has enlisted the expertise of Chen Moore and Associates, an engineering firm, to develop the design and navigate the permitting process. The envisioned improvements include a new, higher seawall and the addition of public amenities. Public engagement initiatives will be conducted to involve Village residents in the design process, incorporating their input through surveys, on-site events, and a public charette-style meeting.

The project will be supported by a matching grant from the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. FIND's grant stipulates the provision of waterfront access to all visitors. A dedicated project webpage will be created to share information, solicit input, and provide updates throughout the project. The design phase is scheduled from February 2023 to May 2024, followed by the anticipated construction start in June 2024. The Village has allocated a design budget of $366,670 for Phase 1. For more information, inquiries can be directed to, and updates can be found on the Miami Shores Village website and social media channels.
