Spearheaded by Commissioner Josh Liebman, the City Commission adopted the resolution—number 033-18-15065—to establish a Sister City with Colombia’s second largest city, Medellin. South Miami is the first city in Miami-Dade County to have a Sister City partnership with Medellin. 

The Colombia Sculpture Garden was later established and is designed to highlight Colombian artist by gracing Dante Fascell Park with an Art in Public Places initiative. To further support the city’s Sister City partnership and to bring naming recognition to the Garden, a monument sign is scheduled to be constructed near the main entrance of the park.
