Plaza 98 transformed a short strip of ordinary road right off Miami Shores’ main drag into a happening place where neighbors can gather, talk, play, learn, dance, eat and more, and endangered native butterflies and plants can find sanctuary. It involved a whole lot of planning and a lot of grease from numerous neighborly elbows, and it all came together on Saturday night.
Other residents of all ages and sizes showed up and, armed with brushes and rollers, filled in the shapes with bright colors.
Besides the painting, tasks included furniture assembly and planter preparation.
With the road painted, furniture assembled, and planters prepared, Bound by Beauty stepped in with a team of volunteers to fill the planters with beautiful native plants, several of which are threatened or endangered in the wild.
So much for the preparations! Now it’s party time in the Shores!
Thank you to all who came out to work and party with your neighbors. Stay tuned for more information on Plaza 98 on the second Saturday in December, when Christmas will be in the air.
