Miami Circle

Well it only took 12 years & 26 million for Miami Circle to be completed. It is now officially a 2.2 acre park with the riverwalk running from the base of the Brickell Bridge just over the site, around to the Miami River's south bank to Biscayne Bay. It further connects with another walkway behind the well known Icon.


The mysterious land possibly dating back to 100 AD is believed to have some kind of ceremonial significance. Discovered in 1998 during the development of Brickell Point, it is widely reputed to be the site of the original Miami settlers, the Tequesta Indians.  Prehistoric bones, artifacts, shells, and ceramics were found on the grounds. Although there is still a lot of disagreement as to it's exact function and by whom,  it is now designated as a public passive park.


You don't have to buy in the beautiful Icon towers to see it...just park (easier said than done) & walk...
