District 2 County Commissioner Jean Monestime, who represents the area, was joined for the ribbon-cutting ceremony by other elected officials and representatives of the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department.

Monestime took time to play a bit of impromptu soccer after the event.

He spearheaded the project in the Miami-Dade County Commission that led to the construction of the 195-foot by 330-foot regulation-size soccer playing field, complete with goals.

Miami-Dade County Parks’ Design/Build Team built the field which was funded by $235,000  from the “Building Better Communities” General Obligation Bonds.

The field sits in the 22-acre Oak Grove Park that also contains a five-acre lake, a three-acre hardwood hammock, four tennis courts and a small recreation center. A domino shelter and additional walkway lighting will be added to the facility.
