Tamiami Park is a public urban park in metropolitan Miami, just south of the Modesto Maidique campus of Florida International University.

Background

The park was built in the late 1960s on the site of the former Tamiami Airport, which was rebuilt as a larger airport south in Kendall. Growth of the surrounding area and the nearby flight path for Miami International Airport forced the relocation of the municipal airport.

The Fair Expo Center, site of the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, is located on the eastern side of the park. Pope John Paul II held an open-air mass for 150,000 people in September 1987.[1] Tamiami Field stadium was located in the park until 1995, when FIU Stadium was built on the south end of the campus. The Miami Toros of the North American Soccer League played there during the 1976 season.

Auto racing

A CART series race was held at the facility from 1985-1988. (See Grand Prix of Miami).
