Park Management Trust is a limited agency of the
City of Miami. The Trust manages two downtown
waterfront parks. Both parks are open to the
public and serve as host sites for numerous concerts
and special events.
Redesigned in the early
1980s by Isamu Noguchi*, Bayfront Park is
a 32-acre site located in the epicenter of downtown Miami
on Biscayne Bay. It is bounded on the north by
Bayside Marketplace (an open-air festival style mall
that attracts 12 million people per year), on the south
by InterContinental Hotel, and on the west by Biscayne
Boulevard (downtown Miami’s “main street”). It
is three blocks from Interstate I-95 and is also easily
accessible by Miami-Dade County public transportation
(Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-Rail, and Metrobus).
Bayfront Park's 32
acres of lush greenery includes a small sand beach, tropical
rock garden and waterfall (dating back to 1926), playground,
fountain, Light Tower, and many different monuments**. The
park recently underwent a renovation of its baywalk.
The baywalk runs along the edge of Biscayne Bay, throughout
the park, and continues to Bayside Marketplace. Renovations
include tree plantings, benches, removable chairs, bike
racks, trash containers, pavers, and a re-working of
a portion of the irrigation system. The renovations were
intended to soften the edges of the park and create a
more pedestrian friendly environment. “Oaks
and palms by the dozen have been planted along the full
length of the 32-acre park’s edge on Biscayne Bay,
bringing instant shade to its broad baywalk and completing
a gradual makeover designed to make it a far more inviting
place.” – The Miami Herald
The maximum capacity of
the park for special events can range from 20,000-25,000
depending on the event infrastructure. The most popular
stage placements are on the Flagler Promenade and adjacent
to the Biscayne Boulevard sidewalk.
Amphitheater at Bayfront Park is
located within Bayfront Park and is managed and operated
by Live Nation. It reopened in August of 2009 after
a multi-million dollar renovation that included permanent
reserved seats; new, picturesque sightlines to Biscayne
Bay; a new superior roof structure; state-of-the-art
production capabilities; VIP boxes with table service
and VIP parking; permanent, new restroom facilities;
expanded concessions, and more. For bookings and inquiries
please contact Live Nation at 561-795-8883 or
Tina Hills Pavilion (capacity 1,000) is also
located within the park and is available for smaller
concerts, receptions, corporate events, and press conferences.
The 1,000 capacity is comprised of fixed seating for
200 and lawn seating for 800. The flexibility of the
open-air design allows for play toward the seats or
away from the seats, facing Biscayne Bay.
a 29-acre site also located on Biscayne Bay, is seven
blocks north of Bayfront Park. The park is currently
undergoing a major transformation. Two institutions,
the Miami Science Museum and the Miami Art Museum, are
building new facilities and the City of Miami has embarked
on a renovation of the remaining 21 acres, to include
a Baywalk and other waterfront amenities. Examples of
events hosted in the past are Lollapalooza, Vans Warped Tour, and Cirque Du Soleil.

Trust facilities are open twelve months per year. The
beautiful Miami weather, with an annual average temperature
of 76 degrees Fahrenheit, allows for year-round operation.
The fact that Miami is a major market with over 2.3
million people in Miami-Dade County completes the equation.
as the 20th century’s foremost American sculptor,
Isamu Noguchi’s innovative parks, plazas, playgrounds,
fountains, gardens, and public pieces are located in
many different countries and celebrated around the world.
Bayfront Park contains three significant Noguchi sculptures:
the Slide Mantra, the Challenger Memorial and the Light
Tower. The Slide Mantra is a 10 foot high, white carrara
marble slide weighing 29 tons. This slide demonstrates
Noguchi’s long held belief that play could lead
to a new appreciation of sculpture. The Challenger Memorial
is a white, metal pipe tower that rises approximately
100 feet out of the park’s southwest corner. The
sculpture is dedicated to the memory of the Challenger
astronauts. The Light Tower is representative of Noguchi’s
earlier work with monumental shapes and their interaction
with light. The forty foot, aubergine tower makes references
to Japanese lanterns and the full moon over Miami.
in Bayfront Park include the Challenger Memorial, a
World War II Veterans’ Memorial, Mildred and
Claude Pepper Fountain, statues of Claude Pepper, Christopher
Columbus, and Julia Tuttle, and the Centennial Time
