    Hialeah

    The City of Hialeah sits in the heart of northwest Dade surrounded by Miami Lakes and Opa-Locka on the north, North Miami on the east, Miami Springs to the south and Doral to the southwest. Its Indian name, meaning "High Prairie," evokes a picture of the grassy plains used by the native Indians coming from the everglades to dock their canoes and display their wares for the new comers of Miami.

    The City of Hialeah sits in the heart of northwest Dade surrounded by Miami Lakes and Opa-Locka on the north, North Miami on the east, Miami Springs to the south and Doral to the southwest. Its Indian name, meaning "High Prairie," evokes a picture of the grassy plains used by the native Indians coming from the everglades to dock their canoes and display their wares for the new comers of Miami. This "high prairie" caught the eye of pioneer aviator Glenn Curtiss and Missouri cattleman James H. Bright who saw its great potential in 1921. Hialeah, incorporated in 1925, has a long and proud history. One of the city's most important and nationally well-known historic sites is the 220 acre Hialeah Park Racetrack, built in 1925. Hialeah Park is an important part of Hialeah's future as well. After a short period when the Park was closed to racing, Hialeah Park reopened in November 2009 with quarter horse racing and is currently undergoing a multi-staged full restoration. Opa-Locka Airport is another major economic contributor to the growth of Hialeah. The City of Hialeah is now the sixth largest municipality in Florida serving residents living in approximately 20-square miles. Hialeah has the largest percentage of Cuban and Cuban American residents of any city in the United States. With a Hispanic population of over 94%, Hialeah’s welcoming immigrant community is now home to Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and other Hispanic groups, making Hialeah a culturally diverse and dynamic place to live.
