After many years of anticipation, Miramar’s Pineland Park has opened at 3600 S. University Dr.
The new park features three nature trails, a children’s water play splash pad, a large covered playground and three rental shelters.
Over the next 2 1/2 years, plans are to build an interpretive center which would house a meeting room with a kitchen, a nature center with interpretive displays, and office and storage space.
This 157-acre park is a combination of restored wetlands, scrubby flatwoods and a prairie.
The park is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
There is no admission fee on weekdays. Entrance on weekends and holidays is $1.50 per person ages six and older.
