Parque Amigos de Jose Marti
is a small .14- acre urban park that pays homage to Cuban national hero Jose Marti. When you cross through the archway, you’re crossing into Cuban property. This small bit of American land was donated to the Estado Cubano (Republic of Cuba) in 1956, three years before the communist revolution. The Batista administration officially accepted the property, and the American consul in Havana certified the transaction. The park is only open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., but due to the small size of the park, the park can be seen from behind the gates.

the inaugural project for Friends of Ybor, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was a new 4,000 square foot dog park with adjoining café in the heart of Ybor at the corner of 18th Street and 4th Avenue. The first gift to Friends of Ybor was the generous donation of land that kicked off the fundraising to construct and maintain this desired community asset.
