Passive Park Groundbreaking

This Friday, January 30, 2009, a groundbreaking will be held at 9:30 a.m. to celebrate the creation of a passive park along an unused right-of-way along 5th Avenue South.

In December 2006, the City Commission unanimously approved a request made by the Lake Worth Rotary Club to create a passive park in the unused, existing 5th Avenue South right-of-way from South F Street to the alley. The Lake Worth Rotary Club has supported and promoted community projects in the community for over fifty years.

A first for the Lake Worth Rotary Club, the project encompassed the preparation of a site plan; securing approval from the Lake Worth Planning and Zoning Board; installing a water meter and entering into an agreement with the City of Lake Worth to maintain the property for a period of eighteen months. The concept included the installation of landscaping, walkways and benches for the passive park. Additionally, the Club has agreed to donate $1,000 to the City of Lake Worth Tree Board to support their efforts in creating a tree canopy throughout the City.
