The Doral parks department has proposed a new design for a planned park and community center on Northwest 114th Avenue.
The 18-acre park will be on 114th Avenue between Northwest 80th and 82nd streets.
City staff members could not reach a deal with the previous architecture and engineering firm, AECOM. After soliciting proposals last fall, the city is recommending St. Petersburg-based Wannemacher Jensen Architects for the project.
The firm will present its concept and discuss the timeline and cost during a public meeting to address the park at 4 p.m. Monday at the Doral Government Center, 8401 NW 53rd Ter.
“Hopefully the community comes out,” said Doral Parks and Recreation Director Barbara Hernández.
Hernández gave the City Council a glimpse of the revised vision for the park at a meeting in late March. Featuring two soccer fields instead of one, the new plan makes more use of the land than the previous design. The park also will have a baseball/softball field, courts for basketball and tennis, two playgrounds and a civic lawn for picnics and events.
The highlight of the park will be a community center with a large multipurpose room and smaller rooms for community fitness and arts classes.
Officials had previously estimated the park’s price tag to be about $12 million. That could come down if the city gets a few grants it has applied for and pursues sponsorships.
