Maurice Ferre Park Sculptures
Nestled in the bustling heart of downtown Miami, Maurice Ferre Park, formerly known as Museum Park, sprawls across 21 acres, offering a dynamic and engaging public space. At its core is an outdoor exhibit featuring 52 larger-than-life sculptures of dogs and cats, each a unique creation by local artists. These whimsical art installations are thoughtfully arranged amidst a vibrant garden, highlighting native plants and infusing the cityscape with an enchanting artistic allure.
