Homestead to Break Ground on New Park Expansion in Downtown Homestead

Losner Park Groundbreaking Invitation Web News

The City of Homestead will break ground on a new park expansion that will transform a quaint pocket park in the heart of Downtown Homestead into an attraction that will draw residents and visitors to relax, celebrate, and gather in the city’s historic core.  The Losner Park Groundbreaking & Veterans Memorial Ceremony will take place Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 10am and can be viewed via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/cityofhomestead.  Due to COVID-19, virtual attendance is highly encouraged, and any in-person guests must maintain strict safety protocols including social distancing and face masks.

The program will begin with the ceremonial removal of the first brick at the existing Homestead Veterans Memorial. A new Memorial, designed in collaboration with local veterans’ organizations, will be erected as part of the Losner Park expansion, and the existing memorial bricks will be relocated to the Homestead-Miami Speedway.  Following this tribute, Homestead’s Mayor, City Council, and other officials will break ground to officially commence with the park expansion.

The newly expanded park, funded solely through impact fees and grants, is designed by Sasaki and Associates –the same architects that master-planned the Beijing Olympic Games.  The park’s design will feature lush native landscaping and will pay tribute to Homestead’s unique position nestled between Everglades and Biscayne National Parks.  The overall design was developed to serve the needs of the Homestead community and provides several areas for recreational activities.  In addition to the new Veterans Memorial, there will be an all-ages play structure, event stage, great lawn, and Everglades Garden.

The new Losner Park is part of an overall vision to revitalize Downtown Homestead.  Other projects recently completed include the City Hall, Police Headquarters, Seminole Theatre, and Homestead Station transit and entertainment center.  The construction of a new high-tech library, the Homestead Cybrarium, is also expected to be completed soon.  Learn more at www.discoverdowntownhomestead.com
