Thalatta Estate has a unique and storied history including the famous image of Capt. Peter Skipp’s 210-ton ship being deposited right here during Hurricane Andrew.
I am proud to have spearheaded an amazing team effort to obtain this historic property for the citizens of Palmetto Bay. We avoided development and made it a wonderful destination. Impressively, this park was purchased entirely through grant money.
Soon after the purchase, we restored and repurposed the estate into a bayside paradise, with this wonderful path, beautiful water feature and more.
But we can’t rest on our laurels and I never stop looking for better. Too few people know that we obtained a grant AND PERMISSION – to add another amenity here – a beautiful boardwalk where we could walk out and look out into the water.
Sadly, that plan has been rejected, passed and then ignored by the current mayor. The result is that the grant and opportunity may have been lost under the current administration. Significant effort gone to waste.
When elected, you can count on me to properly maintain this treasured property and keep moving forward to improve our park amenities. And do it going back to aggressively seeking grant dollars – and properly spending those grant dollars.
