Ribbon Cutting – Lake Worth Domino Park
The City of Lake Worth is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for Domino Park, an unused parcel of land that has been upgraded with Community Development Block Grant funds to better accommodate residents. The ceremony will take place at 2:00pm on Tuesday, April 4th in Domino Park.
“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 unexpended Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to make some improvements to the area that will better accommodate the residents through the provision of 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 dominoes, so it’s great we were able to clean it up and provide a permanent structure to this community meeting place.”
