Miami Beach, and most especially South Beach's South of Fifth neighborhood, has become one of the most sought-after places to live in the world. Recognizing this, the city of Miami Beach planned a multi-million dollar renovation of South Pointe Park, which was completed in 2009. This extensive renovation included a completely new landscape with a variety of vegetation, Palm Trees, walkways, a multicolored nighttime light display along Government Cut, underground water fountains, the creation of elevated sand dunes, party facilities, and even a children's playground! Additionally, a new Pier was constructed where you can walk out several hundred feet to truly experience the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.

South Pointe Park is surrounded by the several luxury condominium buildings - The Continuum South Beach, Apogee, The Portofino Tower, The South Pointe Tower, and The Murano at Portofino. These residents can often be spotted taking advantage of the Park's restored beauty and vibrant atmosphere. After an 18 month period of extensive renovations, South Pointe Park reopened in 2009 and has turned into a local gathering spot, being a great place to socialize and get to know the local "South of Fifth" community.
