Bayfront Park Management Trust is a limited agency of the City of Miami. The Trust manages two downtown waterfront parks.
All facilities mentioned below are available for rental.
FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park is located within Bayfront Park and is managed and operated by Live Nation. It reopened in August of 2009 after a multi-million dollar renovation that included permanent reserved seats; new, picturesque sightlines to Biscayne Bay; a new superior roof structure; state-of-the-art production capabilities; VIP boxes with table service and VIP parking; permanent, new restroom facilities; expanded concessions, and more. In 2020, the new FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park was completed, which has 500 solar panels. The canopy-like solar structure covers nearly 400 feet of walkway around the venue. The Bayfront Park Amphitheater has been renamed the FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park. The solar panels double as a research facility and showcase Miami’s commitment to sustainability. Also included in the 500-panel solar installation are seven solar trees located around the park. The solar canopy and trees feature LED lighting that illuminate the venue at night and can be programmed to change colors to coincide with special events.
The Tina Hills Pavilion (capacity 1,000) is also located within the park and is available for smaller concerts, receptions, corporate events, and press conferences. The 1,000 capacity is comprised of fixed seating for 200 and lawn seating for 800. The flexibility of the open-air design allows for play toward the seats or away from the seats, facing Biscayne Bay.
