WHAT: National Parks Trolley Service

WHEN: November 22, 2014—April 26, 2015

WHERE: Losner Park 104 N. Krome Ave. Homestead, FL 33030

Homestead’s award-winning National Parks Trolley Service will return from November 22, 2014 through April 26, 2015 with more tour times to meet growing demand. The Trolley departs every Saturday and Sunday from picturesque Historic Downtown Homestead, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors can enjoy local area restaurants, take in Homestead’s beautiful historic architecture, or visit the free Old Town Hall Museum before or after their visit to the parks.

The Homestead National Parks Trolley can be picked up at Losner Park in Historic Downtown Homestead at 104 N. Krome Avenue. The trolley connects to bus routes from Miami-Dade County public transportation. There is also plenty of free parking adjacent to the trolley stop. From Downtown Homestead, the National Parks Trolley will bring visitors to Everglades National Park’s Ernest Coe Visitor Center and the Anhinga Trail at Royal Palm. It also travels to Biscayne National Park’s Dante Fascell Visitor Center and boardwalk and to the atoll beach at Miami-Dade County’s Homestead Bayfront Park.

The Homestead National Parks Trolley is the result of coordinated efforts, spearheaded by Vice-Mayor Stephen Shelley, between National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) in collaboration with National Park Service and the City of Homestead. NPCA is America’s voice for national parks and works to protect and enhance America’s National Park System for current and future generations.

Homestead’s National Parks Trolley first launched in January to a standing-room only crowd and brought thousands of visitors from Historic Downtown Homestead to the national parks. The project also recently won three first place Savvy Awards in Community Visioning, Most Innovative Program and Graphic Design Art, as well as a third place Award of Excellence in Marketing Tools at the prestigious National City-County Communications & Marketing Association (3CMA) Savvy Competition 2014.
