A taste of Wynwood Walls has made its way to Coral Springs.
The city celebrated the Pixel Spot opening at 2915 Sportsplex Drive on Nov. 4 — adjacent to Dr. Paul’s Dog Park and across from Coral Glades High School.
Pixel Spit includes four mural walls where visitors can take selfies. The murals depict nature shots and abstract images.
The site also includes a solar-powered electronic charging station, picnic tables, and a waterfront view.
Pixel Spot’s total cost is $40,000.
According to Lindsey Steinberg, media relations coordinator, the project’s development reflects the city commission’s goals of giving a space for teenagers to have as their own.
Teens now have an outdoor space to study, socialize, enjoy a snack, charge a device, and more.
She added that staff from the Parks and Recreation and Marketing and Communications departments held multiple meetings with Coral Glades’s student government, where they provided input and shared ideas about what they wanted for the space.
They chose the murals’ backdrops based on colors from their grade level’s spirit week: green, yellow, pink, and purple.
Coral Springs’ Marketing and Communications department designed the murals, while Parks and Recreation hand-painted the concrete floor to emulate the images’ pixels.
Plans for Pixel Spot include a triangular 28-foot shade structure.
