An artisan market. A dog park with an agility course for quadrupeds. Outdoor pickleball, a skate park, half-court basketball and a soccer mini-pitch for humans. A tropical garden playground for young kids. Self-sustaining micro-forests. Walkways suspended over botanical rainwater ponds. And, as always, lots of public art. Those elaborate features, and more, are what’s in newly unveiled plans for the third and final phase of The Underline, the $140 million urban trail and linear park that will soon run for 10 lushly landscaped miles under the elevated Metrorail tracks from the Miami River to the Dadeland South station, the public transit line’s endpoint.
