LAKE WORTH — Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the $38,000 in improvements to Domino Park has been postponed, the city said this afternoon.

The event is now scheduled for April 15.

The switch was made from Tuesday to a Saturday to allow for better community pariticpation, Ben Kerr, city spokesman told The Palm Beach Post.

The city cleared out a few Australian pines and native vegetation to make way for a pavilion, benches, a sidewalk and mulch at the site on South G Street between South 8th and 9th avenues where residents play dominoes, checkers and host picnics. The project took about three weeks, with the mulch and benches expected to be added this week, the city said.

Lake Worth used money from the Community Development Block Grant program for the project, with the city adding $11,000 of its own money.
