Location

Lummus Park is located between 7th and 8th on Ocean Drive in Miami-Dade on the Atlantic Ocean in South Beach. When redesigned and improved in the mid-1980s, it became the seed project for the redevelopment of what is now the Ocean Drive Deco District of SoBe (South Beach) from 5th to 15th Streets along Ocean Drive. The Miami Beach park initially became the location for many scenes from the television series “Miami Vice,” and its 20′ wide Deco inspired three colored sidewalk, now faded to natural concrete, was the North American homage to Brazilian Landscape Architect Roberto Burle Marxs oceanfront walk along Copacabana Beach near Rio de Janerio.

The Miami Beach park, and the Deco streetscape along Ocean Drive continues to be featured in “Miami” location shots for television and movies, and can be seen in recent episodes of the USA Networks “Burn Notice”.
