“Watch local seniors play Dominos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

This is a very small but decorative,local park which really is just a facility for local Cuban seniors to play Dominos and smoke Cigars but it has a lovely plaza. The Plaza was decorated by artists and it's mainly tile paintings and a large mural.. They currently have a few vendors selling their wares.
I don't recommend just coming to Domino Park as an attraction but if you want to see the local Latin/Cuban historical area,then YES. Make it part of your tour of Little Havana from SW13ave to 16 ave on SW 8st.

“Historical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

After breakfast, my wife, my puppy and I stroll over to the Domino Park to watch the veterans play Dominoes. It is historical and cultural. During our last visit we saw that the City of Miami were powerwashing the whole park...it's nice to see that such a tradition is kept up by both it's participants and the City.

Go and check it out if you have never seen it.

“The next best thing to watching dominos being played in Guantanamo”

I'm a co-author of a domino book, called "Dominos For Schools" and I saw some of the great blocks here. You can learn more at ABCDominos where you can get a free ebook.

“Great experience”

It is a delight to see so many people enjoying themselves in such an open manner. Different cultures can bring people together in odd ways. Worth a visit

“Definitely worth seeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

You're missing out on Miami if you don't give Little Havana and Calle Ocho a visit. Domino Park (aka Maximo Gomez Park) is real culture. Even on a Wednesday afternoon, scores of men are playing double-nines and double-six dominoes, along with others playing chess. This is a private club but very accessible for picture takers like myself. I was surprised that there is a "no smoking" sign up for the club. Across the street is the Little Havana Cigar Factory (shop) where others gather to enjoy a cigar. Nearby cafes serve Cuban style coffee. Even though I was not Cuban or Spanish speaking, I found everyone very socialable and willing to explain what I was seeing. A rich experience!
