Save Marine Stadium Marina Coalition———————
We are the Marine Stadium Marina Coalition working to save Marine Stadium Marina located on Virginia Key in Miami. The coalition is made up of Miami residents who use Marine Stadium Marina for boating activities with friends and family on Miami’s beautiful bay waters.

The marina is the last remaining affordable public city marina in the area. Private for profit private interests are working to privatize the management of our public managed Stadium Marina which is expected to drastically increase costs, thus pricing most middle class families out of the marina and boating access to our Miami bays and oceans.
