City of Hialeah applies for the Meet Me at the Park Grant 
What: Hialeah, Florida – Mayor Carlos Hernandez and the esteemed City Council invite you to help us meet our goals of improving our Parks. Parks are the cornerstone of nearly every community. They serve millions as places to get active, engage in healthy living, connect with nature and gather with loved ones to make memories and have a blast. Please come together and help us improve the parks.

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company on Meet Me at the Park to provide communities with resources to improve local parks through projects that connect kids with nature, promote healthy living and provide access to sports. They are asking for the community to come together and vote for their city to receive a grant to benefit the parks system. The more people who nominate the City of Hialeah, the better the chances we will receive this much needed grant. Please vote for the City of Hialeah at NRPA.org/BeInspired starting April 1st, 2017.
