A Yoga class led by Sumer Thomas of Miami, far left at back, was one of the activities open to people attending a dedication of a parcel of land behind AmericanAirlines Arena as Dan Paul Park, on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Presented by Emerge Miami, the Urban Environment League and the New Tropic, the event was open to the public. Activists say that Miami-Dade County and the Miami Heat have not fulfilled a promise to turn the three-acre waterfront lot into a public park. The dedication of the land as Dan Paul Park honors Paul, a Miami attorney, civic activist and longtime parks advocate who died in 2010.
