City-Owned Cultural Facilties

UNIDAD at the North Beach Oceanfront Center

Organizational Background

The North Beach Oceanfront Center is a City-owned building located at 7251 Collins Avenue. The center provides programs and recreational activities to the City’s elder Community.

On February 14, 2018, the City awarded UNIDAD of Miami Beach, Inc. (UNIDAD) funding for the creation of meal programs to serve the North Beach community. UNIDAD complements its meals program by offering a variety of enrichment programming funded through various sources. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department regularly collaborates with UNIDAD to offer additional programming.

The North Beach Senior Center is a hub providing senior residents a plethora of social activities. The Center’s sound system is outdated and challenged by the facility’s poor acoustics. Moreover, the facility could benefit from several enhancements to better utilize the space to meet the Center’s programmatic needs.
