BAY HARBOR ISLANDS’ NEW OFFICER SCOTT A. WINTERS PARK AT 98TH STREET SIGNALS SURGING INTEREST IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY’S PARKS AND PUBLIC SPACES
MIAMI – April 28, 2015 – The new Officer Scott A. Winters Park at 98th Street in Bay Harbor Islands is officially open to the public. The newly-enhanced recreational facilities represent one step taken by Miami-Dade County’s communities towards increasing public green spaces, and demonstrates – among other efforts currently underway across the city – that this surging interest is more than a fringe movement.
The new park is named in honor of former Bay Harbor Islands resident and police officer Scott Winters, who died in the line of duty in 1990. The new park is the result of enhancements and expansion implemented by Lynx Construction Management, including conversion of an open field, new construction of recreational amenities and the creation of a smaller, open field for the enjoyment of residents and pets.
Recreational amenities now available to visitors include a splash pad water fountain, public rest rooms, two play structures with shaded overheads – one for toddlers and a second for older children – a picnic pavilion, drinking fountains, paver walkways, new park furniture and new landscaping – all designed for long-term community enjoyment.
Lynx Construction Management, an affiliate of The Lynx Companies, was engaged by Bay Harbor Islands to enhance and expand the new park facilities. Through this and other key civic projects, Lynx Construction Management is committed to the firm’s vision of building a better Miami through projects that enrich all of South Florida’s communities.
“We celebrate when our project portfolio affords us the opportunity to build a better Miami across our diverse communities,” stated Christopher M. Moran, President of Lynx Construction Management. “The new park at 98th street in Bay Harbor Island will help address increasing demand for parks and public spaces in Miami-Dade County – and allows us to build on our vision of enriching the Miami-Dade community directly through our business.”
Lynx Construction Management is one of the fastest growing construction companies in South Florida, with anticipated exponential growth in annual revenue during 2015. It has also been selected as one of the South Florida Business Journal’s 2015 Business of the Year finalists.
