MIAMI — Miami-Dade County Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson, in partnership with the Liberty Square Resident Council and Miami-Dade County Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD), has officially cut the ribbon on the new Liberty Square playground.
“It is just good public policy to ensure that when we find open spaces in neighborhoods, especially in public housing areas, we should improve the quality of life of our residents, especially our most vulnerable population, our children,” said Edmonson, citing her continued commitment to enhance the lives of the youth in her district.
The playground, at 1415 N.W. 63rd St. in Miami, is for children ages five to 10 years old living at the Liberty Square public housing development, which was built more than 75 years ago.
The July 9 ribbon cutting ceremony was the highlight of the Liberty Square Summer Bash, a day filled with fun activities for children including balloon animals, bounce houses, waterslides, cotton candy, popcorn, and hot dogs and burgers.
Funding for the playground in Edmonson’s District 3 was provided by PHCD Community Development Block Grant funds. Gregg Fortner is PHCD director.
