After approximately $2 million in renovations, the City of Margate has unveiled a new Serino Park located at 5600 SW 8th Court. The Margate Community Redevelopment Agency funded the upgrades as part of its public purpose to improve parks, playgrounds, and other municipal facilities. Single-family homes surround the neighborhood park.
The initial proposed renovations included a new playground with safety surfacing, covered picnic tables and park benches, restrooms, outdoor drinking fountain/bottle filler, installation of a fitness court, parking lot upgrades, landscaping, irrigation, and decorative up-lighting. After additional input from residents, the project scope was expanded to include upgrades such as a water feature, playground shade structure, video security camera system, and other additional site furnishings. The new park was unveiled on September 2, 2023.
