WEST PALM BEACH —

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Gramercy Park, Palm Beach County’s newest county park, opens with a ribbon-cutting at 9 a.m. Saturday, followed by music, children’s activities, and refreshments. The 1.89 acre park is along 45th Street between Haverhill Road and Florida’s Turnpike in West Palm Beach.

WHAT’S THERE?

The park includes three junior tennis courts and two children’s play areas featuring a slide, climbing structures, and an “Omnispin Spinner,”a variation on merry-go-rounds that’s accessible to all kids, including those with disabilities. It also has a 0.12-mile mulch path, an open grass play field, benches, and a bicycle rack.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU

The county says it responded to community calls for a safe place for youth to play in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. It hopes to eventually build a community center at the site as well. County Parks and Recreation Department operates more than 80 regional, district, community, beach, and neighborhood parks, spanning several thousand acres. Visit www.pbcparks.com.
