Miami-Dade closed several parks a few years ago to remove toxic soil, including Merrie Christmas Park in Coconut Grove, pictured here in a 2013. But levels found at a West Kendall park used by the Devon Aire K-8 Center weren’t high enough to pose a health threat, Miami-Dade says. Now, residents and the school board are asking why they weren’t told about the contamination.
