Is my thinking logical? A flea market would no doubt bring in several thousand bodies into the Grove each week-end & a percentage, say 40% would visit the restaurants & shops and spend addition money about. I wouldn't live in a condo or subject myself & family to the rules of some housing association. HOWEVER, thinking beyond my selfishness if the greatest number of condo's were built at this location [guessing] say as tall as allowed and as many units as possible with each paying property taxes wouldn't that lead to a plus for all Miami taxpayers [guessing] a windfall of say $15-25 million annually. Couldn't all of benefit by this kind of wealth?

I'm all for family friendly! Our family was very disappointed that the dog area at Kennedy was recently remodeled and we still have the gross and stinky bathrooms! Grove Isles used to be a beach and look at what happened there… no condos on the waterfront, please! Just cross the street and enjoy it like all of us. We all pay taxes here and have a right to enjoy what attracted us to the Grove in the first place. South Beach did a lovely park with splash pad for the kids. Maybe add a smoothie stand. Kayak and paddle boarding would be awesome! We already have that at the marinas but would be nice to have as part of the park. Some type of running trail that would connect all the parks and area would be great. It would especially make it safer for all the kids from Ransom that run through S Bayshore in the afternoons. More families are wanting to move into the Grove, let's make it appealing and cater to them/us. It will only make it a better community.

This park should be about unrestricted access and views to the waterfront. Additionally, in keeping with the name, Regatta Park, the design should incorporate floating docks and hoists (min of 2) for the launching/hauling of sailboats, kayaks and SUP boards and a boat house for storage. There is tremendous potential to program the area for triathlons, SUP and sailing regattas and other water-related events and drive thousands of competitors into the restaurants and shops of Coconut Grove. Also, any work on the park should incorporate a storm water management system to filter/capture the runoff of pollutants into the Bay. Focusing on the water quality and marine life in the Dinner Key basin is equally important as the design and management of the park uplands.
