Speak Up to Preserve Miami Marine Stadium
In 2009, the National Trust for Historic Preservation launched a campaign to save Miami Marine Stadium, a modern masterpiece that hovers dramatically over Biscayne Bay and once hosted some of Miami’s most iconic events.
From powerboat races to unforgettable performances by the likes of Ray Charles and Jimmy Buffett, the stadium was Miami’s cultural heartbeat, bringing locals and visitors together to experience Miami’s most cherished asset—its waterfront.
After years of disuse and deterioration, the stadium was named in 2009 as one of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. Since that time, our campaign with dedicated local partners like Dade Heritage Trust has galvanized thousands of stadium supporters to advocate on the structure’s behalf.
Unfortunately, the stadium’s future once again hangs in the balance, as $45 million of city-approved bond funding first approved in 2016 for its restoration and other site improvements now faces a reauthorization vote.
Send letters to city leaders urging them to recommit to preserving this one-of-a-kind landmark.
