Garden @ Amelia Earhart Park401 E 65th St, Hialeah, FL 33013
The reason why I decided to plant my seeds in
Amelia Earhart park is because Ralph Hubbard Norton was an artist and he would
collect an extensive amount of art work for more than twenty years. Norton founded what is now the Norton Museum
in West Palm Beach and has been serving the community creatively since 1941. Amelia
Earhart is like an art museum in a sense where they’re constantly displaying
different “exhibitions” for different occasions. For instance, they host an
Easter Eggstravaganza for families to enjoy the day with their children on
Easter Sunday. That Eggstravaganza was as thought provoking and creative as an
actual piece in an art gallery. Amelia
Earhart also hosts other events that are exhibit like such as Christmas events,
annual fireworks for New Years and Independence Day, along with birthdays on
the daily for whoever decides to host a birthday there.
Amelia Earhart Park also is like an art gallery
in the sense where they have many activities to do throughout the park such as
a petting zoo, kayaking, mountain biking, and volleyball, among many others.
Attendees constantly go to the park as a form of a creative outlet. For
instance, some people shoot photos; write novels, or journals, paint, or draw,
etc. In essence, the park is like the Norton Museum where both locations are a
cultural attraction for visitors and locals.
All in all, planting the seeds in Amelia Earhart
in honor of Ralph Hubbard Norton was a great decision. Many people will
appreciate the fact that his garden is planted there. The correlation between
the park and his gallery are indubitably appropriate for this Flor 500 project.
It will make many people happy once they walk past the growing garden.
