Parks and Recreation Department Announces Temporary Closure of Athletics Turf Fields for Summer Maintenance

Miami Lakes, F.L. – From June 10 through August 10, 2023, the athletic turf fields at both Royal Oaks Park and Miami Lakes Optimist Park will be closed for annual summer maintenance.

Residents and family members will have access to an area at Miami Lakes Optimist Park north of the basketball courts for play, in addition to the perimeter berm area for exercises. One field may be left open on a rotating basis. At Royal Oaks Park, residents may take advantage of the open play field area, the green space just east of the picnic shelters, and the walking trail. Pick-up games and other nonorganized activities are encouraged to take advantage of the open play field areas (lower bowls) at Royal Oaks Park or the fields at Barbara Goleman Senior High School.

The Town of Miami Lakes is committed to providing high-quality recreational facilities for its residents. The Town greatly appreciates the cooperation of all its residents and park-goers in working together to preserve and improve the conditions of the Miami Lakes Optimist Park and Royal Oaks Park. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask one of our friendly staff members or contact us at 305-364-6100.


With the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season beginning June 1st, our applications for Jerry's Squad—a Hurricane Preparedness Assistance Program for disabled or elderly residents that require assistance when Miami Lakes is under hurricane warnings—are now open.

To aid in this effort, the program is also in need of volunteers to assist with Jerry's Squad and its preparations. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and must also submit applications.
