ON THIS DAY
Miami-Dade County Parks reopened for the first time today at 6 a.m. which has been closed with other recreational facilities countywide since March 18.
However, its reopening does not come without opposition from municipalities. Despite the county’s list of new rules and bans to help mitigate the spread of the virus at these parks, Miami-Dade’s three largest cities (Hialeah, Miami and Miami Gardens) said its too early to reopen and ordered their parks to remain closed. In other cities, basketball courts, which Gimenez said could be open as long as games are banned, remain closed.
