Miami Gardens

Miami Gardens is the third largest city in Miami-Dade County, occupying about 20 square miles, easily accessible from all major area highways. In the late 1960s, many middle and upper income African American and West Indian American families migrated from other Miami neighborhoods to what is now Miami Gardens, resulting in a population that is predominantly African American.


Hard Rock Stadium, home field for both the Miami Dolphins football team and the University of Miami Hurricanes football team, is one of Miami Garden’s top attractions. The stadium also hosts the annual Orange Bowl college football game. Miami Gardens is also home to Calder Casino, where all of the latest slots, electronic table games, bingo and great promotions are waiting for you to try your luck!


On the arts and culture scene, two Miami Gardens annual festivals that have gained notoriety, are Jazz in the Gardens and the International Music & Food Festival. Jazz in the Gardens, held in March, celebrating diversity, culture and art through various genres of music, has easily become its premiere entertainment event. The International Music & Food Festival, held in August, features an evening of music from across the African and Latin Diaspora.


The twelve parks that lie within its borders, provide plenty of opportunity to engage in different sports and outdoor activities. This aligns with Miami Gardens’ city-wide commitment of encouraging and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
