Tequesta Indian Miami Circle Park to get state upgrade

May 16, 2019

The state is preparing to make long-term improvements to Miami Circle Park, home to a 2,000-year-old Tequesta Indian artifact at the mouth of the Miami River.

The Department of State has set aside about $500,000 for an improvement plan for the state-owned 2.5-acre site on the northern edge of Brickell.

Timothy A. Parsons, representing the department, presented the plan to improve the famous historic site, also known as Miami Circle at Brickell Point, to the Miami River Commission on May 6.

According to Mr. Parsons, the state had already made some improved changes to the property but much of the progress was erased during Hurricane Irma in September 2017. The state has since regrouped and is prepared to make a substantial investment to bring “more sustainable” and long-term changes to the site.
