US History In Hialeah Park

The Hialeah Park Race Track (also called Miami Jockey Club, Hialeah Race Track, and Hialeah Park) is a United States National Historic Place. The park is also an official Audubon Bird Sanctuary. Visitors will see hundreds of flamingos in the infield.

Horse racing within the park stopped in May of 2001, and then some racing was hosted in late 2009 and in 2010, but stopped once again. Live racing began once more in December 2014, in time for the winter tourist season.

Other events at the park include big-name boxing, casino activities with almost 1,000 slot machines and other games, famous entertainers, and big screen simulcasts of horse racing from other cities. See more information below.

The lake in the park includes many islands that are home to several flocks of up to 300 pink flamingos each.

Hialeah Park Race Track - 40 Blocks Of History

The 40 square blocks of the famous park run between Palm Avenue and East 4th Avenue, and from East 22nd Street on the south to East 32nd Street on the north.

Historic Hialeah Racetrack

This famous horse racing track was built in 1922 to open in 1925 with an architectural style known as Mediterranean. The landscaping was salted with pink flamingos from Cuba and South America in order to add personality and public regional appeal. In early years, it featured the first commercial Jai Alai court in America, a dance hall, and a roller coaster in addition to racing venues.

The descendants of these first birds live at Hialeah today and comprise a national treasure that tourists and residents love. The park is actually an Official US Sanctuary for the American Flamingo, according to the National Audubon Society.

In the 21st century, several architectural and preservation groups have raised money to prevent Hialeah Park from being turned into a housing development filled with condominiums and retail spaces. A large core of concerned citizens want to keep it as a historic landmark and as an events venue for racing, casino, and sporting events. Tourists would also rather visit a race track with historic flamingos, rather than a housing development - even a new multi-use development.

In fact, the lake in the park includes many islands that are home to several flocks of up to 300 pink flamingos each. These gorgeous birds and their protected sanctuary cannot be destroyed for a housing development.

Hialeah itself is a Seminole Native American word that means "High Prairie."

Early aviation genius Glenn Curtis helped to found Hialeah Race Track and Jockey Club. His name became famous is Dayton, Ohio as Curtis-Wright projects began to flourish on and around what became Wright Patterson Air Force Base and the National Aviation Heritage Trail.

      Call the main information number of the school and ask which department it might be for that particular school. If they do not know, call the Human Resources Depatment or the Aumni Assciation.

      To make a Hub Request, click on REQUESTS at the top of the page and follow the directions there. You can make a request and look up other requests. It's pretty neat.

      Hi RACM - Many colleges and universities maintain records of how many graduates are hired by the major employers in the area and how many grads are hired in each Industry, with additional statistics as well. You could check websites and call the schools and find out. In addition, some employers keep statistics on which collges/universities their new hires are from. You might check their websites and call their HR departments.

      Let us know what you find out. If you come up empty, put in a Hub Pages request and Ill look into it.

      Regards,

      Patty
