Plaza of the Americas Renovation

The Plaza of the Americas is the heart of campus.
More than eight decades after the Plaza of the Americas’ dedication, the university’s “town square” is in need of tender care. A renovation will transform the Plaza into an inviting campus centerpiece so that just as Central Park in New York and the National Mall in Washington are the backyards of their cities, the Plaza of the Americas will continue to be UF’s favorite outdoor retreat and signature campus landmark.

    The brick walkway that runs through the Plaza is called “Friendship Walk.” Built in 1967, each student was allowed to lay a brick.
