While Miami isn't teeming with green space, Franklin Sirmans unearths three urban parks that soften the presence of towering condos, which dominate the skyline. "Miami can seem to be building upon building, and filled with construction, but these parks give us a sense of possibility," says Sirmans. Steps away from PAMM is Bayfront Park (301 N. Biscayne Blvd.; 305-358-7550), which separates the downtown from Biscayne Bay. Home to a large amphitheater and an open-air pavilion, it is the perfect spot for outdoor music festivals, which run the gamut from Caribbean to techno. The park is also base camp for the Flying Trapeze School, where those with a daring streak can learn to fly through the air. Vacant and blighted land became something beautiful when Omni Park (1234 N. Miami Ave.;305-484-8948) was created under a superhighway. The neighborhood buzzes with activity at the seven-acre park, which is outfitted with skateboard ramps, and a music stage, and where yogis attend free classes hosted every Saturday at 10 a.m. Check out the easternmost Art Parcel, with public art commissioned by PAMM by local artist Michael Loveland. At the eight-acre waterfront Margaret Pace Park (1745 Bayshore Dr.; 305-350-7938), with its sweeping vistas of Biscayne Bay, take a stroll along the drive, and pause on one of the three elaborate thrones, the product of a public-art project by local students, which evoke the influences of Jewish, Spanish, and African-American heritage on South Florida.
