Galiano Green: Downtown Coral Gables Community Park
The Galiano Green is a 2016 Public Space Challenge Project that is creating a public green space with seating, shade, and bike amenities on a leftover space along a downtown Gables parking lot. A catalyst project to a downtown greenway, the short term plan is to activate and improve an existing strip of green that residents and visitors can enjoy in the middle of a bustling urban area. The first phase of the Galiano Green will open November 2017 and is made possible by the 2016 Public Space Challenge, a program of The Miami Foundation.
To help new cyclists learn to bike commute or get more comfortable on their bike, Bike Walk Coral Gables offers experienced Bike Mentors that can help choose a bike and accessories; safety check your bike; teach bike safety; plan routes; accompany them on their first ride; provide encouragement; and answer questions.
