The Underline is the name given to THE project to create a 10-mile urban trail and linear park from the Miami River to Dadeland South.
Friends of The Underline a 501(c)(3) non-profit advocating to transform the underutilized land below Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park, urban trail and canvas for artistic expression are gearing up for a busy year full of fun activities and events to keep the community exciting about the future Underline.
UNDERLOUNGE powered by Baptist Health South Florida brought the Brickell neighborhood to life with over 1,000 guests enjoying a free festival celebrating biking and community at the Brickell Metrorail station from Noon-4 PM on Saturday March 11th. The outdoor event featured live music performances by local musicians including Grammy-nominated Palo!, Elastic Bond and RioALuna, interactive art classes by Bottle and Bottega and local artists showed off their creative talent with a bike painting display. The temporary outdoor gym was alive with free yoga, Zumba and boot camp sessions. And, at 1 PM volunteer models biked down the UnderStyle fashion runway wearing the latest fitness and lifestyle looks provided by Brickell City Centre boutiques including Lululemon and Harmont & Blaine. Guests enjoyed yummy food from local restaurants Perricones Marketplace & Café, Italian Pizzetta, Drunken Dragon, Vice City Bean and Paleta305. And, craft beer was on tap from the Tank Brewing Company. Over 100 people arrived on bike as they rode from Dadeland North Metrorail station for Bike The Underline with Bike 305.
