Elizabeth Virrick Park meeting tonight
The meeting is open to the public.
Please come to the meetings and support the park, named after Elizabeth Wilhelmina Landsberg Virrick, a pioneer in housing reform in black post-World War 2 Miami. The park has some of the best indoor and outdoor basketball courts (home to Miami’s annual Black Top Basketball Tournament), they have great music and educational programs for local youth (in partnership with the University of Miami, the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative and other participants), a new senior citizen program is being formed, too.
The park has nice picnic areas for the family, annual Music and Art Festivals are part of the activities throughtout the year, they also have a modern Miami-Dade County Public Library branch and upon approval, the future home of a year-round Olympic size pool (replacing the existing dated Pool). Also the park facilities are available to rent (via the City of Miami, Department of Parks and Recreation) for special occasions.
