Surfin' USA Miami: the world's first urban surf pool
Enhance your blogging experience by pushing the button:According to today's Miami Herald, "Miami city officials are concerned that plans for the redesign of Bicentennial Park are too elaborate and pricey." Well, since it has been brought up, we thought we'd remind who is ever interested that one plan that has never been discussed is ours-- creating the first urban surf pool in the boat slip separating AA Arena and Museum Park. We think it's a natural. Funding might be a joint venture between the city and a surf pool builder (there are more than one). Open 24 hours a day, it would also provide free entertainment to those sitting on grassy berms on each side of the surf pool. And, of course, it would be another already-in-place venue for a future Olympics. If you agree with us, you can voice your opinion at a public meeting tomorrow from 6:30-8:30pm at City Hall, 3500 Pan American Drive. If you can't make the meeting, you can still contact the City of Miami planning department here to let them know how stoked you are on this idea. Until then, keep hanging ten, dude!
