James T. Barker Park
1047 Venetia Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134

One of five recently acquired neighborhood parks in Coral Gables is James T. Barker Park. Located at 1047 Venetia Avenue, the park was named after the late Coral Gables Commissioner who dutifully served the city for 12 consecutive years until 2001. The 0.19-acre park is a welcomed addition to the neighborhood, where residents can enjoy a moment of reflection or watch children play at this beautifully landscaped oasis. Tropical palms, native shrubs, and flowering plants give the park an English flower garden style. The park features an inviting trellis swing structure, a bench seating area, carved stone benches made of oolite stone, as well as natural boulders and logs for kids to explore. Landscape lighting illuminates the pathways and trees, adding security and character to this unique neighborhood park.

Another recent addition to the City’s park inventory is Majorca Park, located at 937 Majorca Avenue in a well-traveled corner just north of the Coral Gables Country Club and adjacent to two of the City’s historic entrances.

The park is surrounded by several species of colorful flowering shrubs that butterflies love to visit such as Brazilian cloak, thyrallis, white Geiger, stoppers, locust berry, wax jasmine, ruellia and pentas.
