Bayfront Park is the 32-acre lot that has been home to Ultra Music Festival from 2001-2005 and then again from 2012-2015.
Just recently Bayfront Park has been dubbed one of Miami's “poison parks” due to the harmful arsenic, lead and other toxins that were found recently polluting the soil. In order for there to be an Ultra Music Festival 2016, a massive cleanup has been in the works and so far it has already cost millions of dollars.
Due to the work at hand, city officials and the Bayfront Park Management Trust have been in negotiations with Miami-Dade County environmental regulators to help determine what the most cost-effective process would be.
“The whole issue has been moving along extremely slowly,” Frank Carollo, trust chairman and Miami city commissioner told the Herald.
Let's hope this all gets cleared up by next year for Ultra Music Festival 2016.
