A Photo Adventure in Fort Dallas Park

This June, I wrote an article for the Biscayne Times on the enigmatic and forgotten Fort Dallas Park in Downtown Miami. This overlooked piece of Miami history is as much an endearing gathering place as it is prime real estate in a booming urban core. Surprisingly, the city has let it go to the dogs (and feral cats). The only folks who gather there now are squatters with a pretty sweet deal: shelter from tropical weather, syphoned power for laptops and deep fryers, and a river view.

I took a Saturday trip to the park to photograph the scenery for my article and to have a strange urban exploration experience.

Here’s a collection of some of the photos which did not make the cut for publication.
