On Saturday, March 16 at 11:00 am, the Homestead community is invited to participate in the Grand Re-Opening of Blakey Park. A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place and refreshments will be served.
The park, which is located in the Southwest area of Homestead at 600 SW 14 Avenue, has been treated with a grand renovation that includes new equipment and a beautification project.
Two new playgrounds were installed in the park, which for years held nothing but a running track. Also, two event pavilions with benches are now open for the community to rent for events or simply use as shelter from the sun. One of the most exciting new features at Blakey Park are the fitness stations, which offer residents exercise equipment with workout routines instructions. All these renovations were made possible by the Homestead Community Redevelopment Agency.
