La Plaza Colombia - Floor Plan


By partnering with the Miami Dade County Parks and Recreation Department and with the strong support of Miami Dade County Commissioner Joe A. Martinez, The Colombian American Coalition proudly announces the launching of the Plaza Colombia project. The Plaza Colombia will be a first of its kind. The Plaza Colombia will include artistic components as well as rest areas and lush landscaping, all celebrating Colombian American heritage. Its modern design and brick walkways promise to make “Plaza Colombia” an esthetically pleasing and eye-catching place to visit. The Plaza Colombia will be located at Westwind Lake Park 6805 SW 152 Ave in West Kendall. We have assembled a dedicated team of professionals to work on this magnificent project. We are confident the Plaza Colombia will bring joy and pride to Colombian Americans and to all who visit La Plaza for generations to come. Ground breaking for the Plaza Colombia project is scheduled for July 20th, 2009.
