Need for parks in Midtown

Has anyone else noticed the utter absence of parks in the rapidly developing Midtown and Wynwood area? I noticed this walking over to the bay near Biscayne and 33rd Street.

It looks like Miami has sold its Midtown coast line to the condo developers; parks cannot be found anywhere.

In fact, the only arable lands are fenced in for future development. It’s sad to see that the only access to the coast are the dead-end streets. The gated condo look is such an eye-soar and looks more like a series medieval fiefdoms than an inviting community. We need public parks and walkable shores in Midtown.

Where is the City of Miami on this?
