Deering Estate at Cutler to offer free admission on selected dates

By Robert Hamilton….
The Deering Estate at Cutler will offer free admission on the following Saturdays: July 16, Aug. 20 and Sept. 17, as part of its annual Fee-Free “PLAY” Days.

Bring your family and friends and enjoy complimentary admission as well as hands-on eco-art activities, science discovery programs, and historic house tours — all for free.

Guests can stroll through the Artist Village where the Deering Estate’s Artists-in-Residence create and display works of art. The Grove House Artist Exhibit also will be on display in the Richmond Cottage and Stone House through Aug. 31. Spend the entire day and have a picnic on the main lawn facing Biscayne Bay.

The Fee-Free “PLAY” Days were created to honor the Deering Estate’s partner organizations and the community. On July 16 the estate will honor the Village of Palmetto Bay; on Aug. 20 it will honor teachers and environmental educators, and on Sept. 17 it will honor the Scouts. The entire public can enjoy a variety of programs and activities — all for free.

The estate invites guests to “PLAY” — Preservation, Learning, Adventure, Year-round — and enjoy the many tours, educational programs, and special events that the Estate has to offer.

The Deering Estate at Cutler, a Miami-Dade County Park, is located at 16701 SW 72 Ave. This 444-acre natural and archeological preserve and historic site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a center for education, culture and recreation.

Historic house tours are offered daily at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and a Natural Areas Tour is offered daily at 12:30 p.m. Both the Historic House Tour and the Natural Areas Tour are free with regular admission to the estate. EcoAdventure Tours also are offered throughout the year for an additional fee.
