Friends of The Underline

The Underline has officially opened Phase 1 of its planned 10-mile project in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami.

Opening in phases through 2025, The Underline is transforming the land below Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park, urban trail, and public art destination.

How does someone turn a really big idea into reality and transforms a city? Just ask Friends of The Underline founder and president, Meg Daly.

The Underline is Miami’s newest park below the Metrorail, transforming a 10-mile linear park, biking and jogging trail, and outdoor art gallery.

Eight years ago, after Daly broke an arm and couldn’t drive to her physical therapy appointments, she started taking the train and walking under the tracks. At the time, the path was neglected, dirty, and unwelcoming.

Daly recognized that this area could be a valuable part of the city and started advocating for its transformation, working with partners to raise $120 million (to date) for the construction of a new park inspired in part by the High Line in New York.

We talk about what started this unique project of Friends of The Underline and how to sell a really big idea.
