Free Classes at 401 Hampton Lane Park on February 9 and February 23, 2019

Posted: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 9:45 am


The community is invited to participate in these free classes at Key Biscayne’s first neighborhood park, called 401 Hampton Lane Park. These classes will take place outside, so don’t forget to wear sun protection—sunscreen and a hat—and bring a water bottle. Click here to view the park's location. Classes are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.



Saturday, February 9 from 9:00 – 11:00 AM 

Come take a botanical tour of Key Biscayne’s first neighborhood park.  Arielle Simon, who was the park’s horticultural adviser during its creation and is a certified horticulturist and landscape inspector, will help you learn the names and origins of the plants (over 100 species) in the landscape. 


For more information, please contact Arielle Simon at



Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 – 11:00 AM  

It’s not the luck of the draw. Anyone can draw. You will learn not only how to draw the plants in the park, but also how to draw plants anywhere, and furthermore, how to draw anything.  Brett Simon, the park’s designer, will teach drawing in a way that will truly allow you to draw anything.  Sketchpads and pencils will be provided.  Nonetheless, please bring your own materials if you already have them.  


For more information, please contact Brett Simon at
