Hialeah activist protests over dead flamingo in Miami Springs

HIALEAH, Fla. – Milly Herrera has been fighting for years to “save” the Hialeah Park Race Track, a national historic landmark since 1979.

This week, she warned that a dead flamingo that turned up on Monday was a sign of the failure to protect “one of nature’s most beautiful creatures” at the 200-acre park.

Herrera said she waited for the Miami Dade Water and Sewer Department to access a clay pit in Miami Springs to deliver the dead flamingo to the Hialeah Race Track.

“They have destroyed almost every tree inside the park that lined East 4th Avenue,” Herrera wrote adding it had been known as the Flamingo Way.

She accused city officials of failing the late Sen. Roberto Casas, of Hialeah, who had long supported turning the national historic landmark into a public park.

County and state records show Stephen Brunetti, of Bal Bay Management, owns the property at 100 E 32nd St., in Hialeah.
