A rendering of Waterfront Park

Waterfront Park

On May 15, 2018, the Council approved the Waterfront Park site plan concept (12,163 sf Community Center) for development.  In September 2019, the contract with Zyscovich was executed, and the Waterfront Park design commenced.

Bal Harbour Village has begun construction on its first Waterfront Park. This enclave, nestled across from the current Village Hall, will feature open lawn areas for passive activities, strolling gardens, meditative spaces, progressive exercise zones, and a “Mother Earth, Cycle of Life”-themed playground designed by award-winning Danish firm, Monstrum. The 1.5 acre property also includes a terraced garden, a splash pad, and additional Raymond Jungles-designed landscaping with a forest-style canopy that leads visitors into the new Community Center, designed by Zyscovich Architects.

The intimate, three-story jewel has a mirrored-glass design which will reflect the park from the outside and bring nature inside. This 24,000 square foot facility will house multi-purpose event spaces, an indoor toddler playground, as well as the administrative offices for the Recreation, Arts & Culture department. A third-floor landscaped and covered roof deck will have magnificent water and city views and can be multifunctional for use as party and pre-function spaces or for relaxation.

Project Timeline & Recent Updates:

The Village contractor, NV2A, commenced the work on the Village Park project after receiving NTP No. 2 on February 1st, 2022. Preliminary work included the sea wall, relocation of existing trees, and structural work of the north perimeter wall. Once the foundation was set, structural work and construction of each floor followed. Playground equipment, the splash pad, playground surfacing, and fitness equipment were installed and finalized. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work inside the facility is being completed for final inspections while landscaping, lighting, and outdoor furniture is being delivered and installed in the exterior of the park. We anticipate substantial completion by the end of this calendar year and a grand opening thereafter in early 2024.
