Roberto Clemente Park Improvements

There are two components to the improvements at Roberto Clemente Park.  First, there are the elements of the general park improvements that will be part of the park itself, such as the new artificial turf baseball/soccer field (hybrid), parking lot, etc.  These improvements will be managed by the Office of Capital Improvements (OCI).  You may see the project information for these improvements as you stroll down this webpage. 

Second, there will be a series of flood prevention projects in the City of Miami, and there is a flood prevention improvements project for Clemente Park.  The flood prevention improvements will be managed by the Resilience and Public Works Department (RPW).  You may visit the webpage to the Clemente Neighborhood Flood Improvements here.  

Per a City of Miami Commission-supported declaration of intent, bonds will be issued for the improvement of Roberto Clemente Park Flood Improvements, Little River Mini Park Renovations, Shorecrest, and Southwest Wynwood Flood Improvements (Resolution 3(PDF, 157KB)).  This declaration also supported the acceptance of a grant specifically assigned for sea level rise and flood protection for Roberto Clemente Park project (Resolution 9(PDF, 131KB)).

As a result, the funding for the design phase for Roberto Clemente Park flood prevention improvements has been approved. Next steps include finalizing the “Request for Proposal” (RFP) for the project, and then the bid process for design will begin. Thereafter, the project will move over to the Planning Department and other City departments. We anticipate for these processes to be completed by mid-year in 2024. The bond funding will not be available until November/December 2023.

The elements of this project include:

  • Artificial turf baseball/soccer field (hybrid)
  • Drainage improvements

  • Power bank for events
