Merrie Christmas Park

Miami, FL

 

Curtis + Rogers Design Studio, Inc. was retained by the City of Miami to provide design and remediation services for an environmentally contaminated area west of the existing playground along SW 42nd Avenue. A pollinator-rain garden will provide phytoremediation of the existing contaminants while a stabilized aggregate path with a binder will allow for rainwater percolation. The selection of groundcover and shrubs are pollinator attractant and contaminant extracting plant materials that will enhance local biodiversity while also remediating the site.
