Community and Preservation Advocacy:

Friends of the Commodore

The Friends of The Commodore Trail, a group of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables neighbors, were honored for working together to create a world-class urban trail through the oldest neighborhoods on Miami’s waterfront. The Commodore Trail unites the full five-mile length of Coconut Grove to join the Coral Gables waterway neighborhoods. Starting at the Rickenbacker Causeway it includes South Bayshore Drive, winds past eleven parks, eight schools, historic landmarks and the heart of The Grove’s business district. The Trail continues along the beautiful, canopied stretch of Main Highway and Douglas Road all the way to Coral Gables’ Cocoplum Circle. As volunteers, the Friends of the Commodore Trail advocate for near-term and long-term improvements to the Trail.
