“It’s an exciting time. Our goal is a goal that not many cities have, which is to have every resident within a 10-minute walk of a park. That’s the highest standard you can have,” said Mayor Bermudez. “It’s very important to remember that Doral was one of the incorporate cities without any real green space. So, now 18 years later, we’re probably one of the cities with some of the best parks in Florida. Some of them have won statewide and national awards, and we continue to do that.”MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Death Toll Tops 53,000 In Florida
