Palmetto Design Center in Miami Gardens Celebrates Grand Opening With Community Fun Day for All Ages

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (October 25, 2017)–On Saturday, Oct. 22nd, Palmetto Design Center, a new shopping center anchored by Walmart Neighborhood Market at 3791 NW 167th St. in Miami Gardens, hosted Community Fun Day to celebrate the grand opening of several new tenants including OPI Nails, Edible Arrangements and T-Mobile. The event provided the developers, Macken Companies and DZD Holdings, an opportunity to thank the City of Miami Gardens and local community for their support. A children’s DJ, stilt walker, unicyclist and juggler entertained the crowd while face painting and fire truck tours added to the fun.

Mayor Oliver Gilbert and Vice-Mayor Erhabor Ighodaro from the City of Miami Gardens participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and the development team presented a check to Excelsior Charter Academy in the amount of $1,000. Dean of Students Anthony Harris accepted the check on behalf of the school.
