Oak Grove Park getting new walkway lights



Miami-Dade County wants to give people a little more fun after dark. To help, a $300,000 walkway light system for Oak Grove Park has been installed.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Jean Monestime and staff with the county parks department will dedicate the lights at 10 a.m. Sept. 11 at a public ceremony.

The lights, provided by the Quality Neighborhood Improvement Program, will help parkgoers keep fit with 37 new energy-efficient LED light poles.

“Oak Grove Park is a very active community park. This new amenity will better accommodate neighbors who enjoy walking on the pathway and other sports activities at this park after the sun goes down,” Commissioner Monestime said in a statement.

Oak Grove Park, 690 NE 159th St. in Northeast Miami-Dade, is also home to a five-acre lake, four tennis courts, a small recreation center and a soccer field.
