This public forum will allow residents to take part in the planning and redevelopment of Huizenga Park, set to break ground later this year.
The renowned design firm selected for the project, Perkins&Will, will present their proposed concept for the signature park, which includes a restaurant, a dog run, and upgraded signage and lighting.
Attendees will then be encouraged to voice their opinions and suggestions for the design, as well as discuss what the redevelopment will mean for Downtown Fort Lauderdale as a whole moving forward.
The DDA really wants this to be a community project and is interested in having community members weigh in.
Over the past few years, Huizenga Park has existed as an underutilized space.
The DDA has selected Perkins&Will to re-envision the park to make it a more activated and usable space where people can enjoy events, work remotely, grab a bite to eat, and connect with the city.
