Amelia Earhart Park was a part of the Miami Municipal Airport at Masters Field, what became Opa-locka Airport, and opened to traffic in 1926. A portion of the land was renamed in honor of Amelia Earhart and dedicated as Amelia Earhart Field in October 1947.[1] The General Services Administration closed the naval air station, and later the marine air station, in 1959 as part of cutbacks to military surplus.[2] Most of the former air station was donated to Dade County for use as a general aviation airport in the mid 1960s and it became Opa-locka Airport. Development of the Amelia Earhart Park was completed in 1980.
