The “Peacock Tour” was developed by local residents as an artistic project to enhance the community and visitor’s engagement. The CDC realized that Coconut Grove Village West did not have a “peacock” represented and purchased our very own peacock and named him “Nassau Daddy” in recognition of the rich heritage of the first settlers and support of this community. The peacock stands proudly at the corner of Douglas Road and Grand Avenue, dressed in his uniform of a Bahamian officer and positioned to observe those coming and leaving our community. The CDC, with support from Pinnacle Housing Group, commissioned Rosie Brown, a Coconut Grove-based artist, to design and paint our peacock and an official unveiling was attended by community, city and county officials.
