UPDATE. The Ribbon Cutting for Domino Park today was cancelled, to be rescheduled.

Because County funds are being used for Domino Park here in the City of Lake Worth there have been scheduling conflicts and the ribbon cutting today has been cancelled — this happens from time to time — stay tuned for another date and time to come some time shortly.

Ribbon Cutting – Lake Worth Domino Park (South G St. between 8th Ave. South and 9th Ave. South)

The City of Lake Worth is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for “Domino Park” that has been upgraded with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to better accommodate residents.

Domino Park was an unimproved parcel of land in the City right-of-way that has been used as a community meeting place for years by residents in the area. Palm Beach County allowed the City to utilize un-expended CDBG funds to provide a more attractive venue and protection from the elements.

“We were able to complete some of our other CDBG projects on time and under budget, so the County graciously allowed us to put the remaining funds toward other locations – Domino Park and the upgrading of the Osborne Pavilion specifically. Residents in the area are always out here playing checkers and dominos, so it’s great we were able to clean it up and provide a permanent structure to this community meeting place.”
—Jamie Brown, Director of Public Services

Located in central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with an individualistic style. People are drawn to the City by its acceptance of different cultures and lifestyles, historic districts, hip downtown and colorful arts district.
