Saturday: UnderLounge Festival at Underline Brickell Backyard

The Underline is a proposed 10-mile linear park that will run below the Miami Metrorail from the Miami River to the Dadeland South Station. In the words of it’s founder, The Underline

will connect communities, improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety, create over a hundred acres of open space with restored natural habitats, encourage a healthy lifestyle, provide an easily accessible place to exercise, create a mobility corridor that integrates transit, car, biking and walking, provide a 10-mile canvas for artistic expression, attract development along US1, and generate significant economic impact.

To learn more about the Underline Linear Park, you are invited to attend The UnderLounge festival at the future site of the Underline’s Brickell Backyard. It’s FREE and fun for all ages!
