City parks and beaches will return to normal operations. Any exceptions will be listed on our city website here. Although parks will be open, we will not be restoring shade canopies and other movable elements (e.g..nets and wind shields on the tennis courts) until Tuesday.

Flood Information
Miami Beach is still experiencing minor flooding from King Tides and intermittent rains ahead of Hurricane Dorian Please remember not to drive or walk through flood waters and remember these tips:
  • Locate your flood insurance policy to be ready in the case you may need to file a claim for damage.
  • Elevate mechanical equipment and appliances, as able, if you anticipate that waters may enter areas such as your garage.
  • Avoid parking your vehicle in low lying areas- move it to higher ground, such as a parking garage.
  • If curbside parking areas are flooded, residents are permitted to park their vehicles safely onto the swale. Vehicles parked on swale areas must not obstruct the sidewalk, roadways or driveways.
