new day

new faces! As you know, NSP is all about bringing our neighbors together. Over the last year, we've seen more and more neighbors come together to support NSP and enjoy the events we’ve all come to love. Last year, we created a new event, Rock the Park. With bands and food trucks, it was a huge hit. We were so happy to see so many new faces. It was truly a fun day at the park. Many thanks to Music Grand Effect, Berretta Grove, Rudy Gil, Streekind and DJ Bert for putting on such a great show. It rocked! Our signature Halloween event was amazing. In fact, we even had a frozen beverage truck on 32 Street. Huge hit – the pink lemonade hit the spot... NSP’s Miracle at Schenley Park was bigger and better than ever before at its new venue. Holiday music,

treats and a visit from jolly ol' Saint Nick made for a fun afternoon at he park. Best of all, we were able to finish off the night with a movie under the stars. Thank you to all who donated so many toys. MCH's Radio Lollipop distributed them to hospitalized children on Christmas morning. I want to thank our NSP board as well as the next door neighbors of the park for helping make all our events a success. I would also like to thank Miami Children's Hospital, Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa and her staff for their generous support, which has made our community events a reality. If you like our events, we encourage you to join NSP and get involved. We look forward to another great year and hope to see you all soon! – Eric Borrazas, President borrazas@bellsouth.net

A Message from Chairwoman Sosa

Parks with playgrounds are an integral part of neighborhood living,” said Chairwoman Sosa. “This new playground will provide this community’s children with a safe place to socialize and enjoy outdoor playtime.” The new 3,800-square-foot playground is designed for children ages 2-12 and features the popular Evos® play system equipment with overhead ladders, steppers, slides, gliders, swings and a Dino Climber, manufactured by Landscape Services Inc. The play area includes two shade structures and an artificial turf surface for ADA accessibility. Improvements included fencing, paved walkways, landscaping, shade trees and solar lighting for the walkways.
