This special area created by the city gives retired and other men a venue for the national sport of Cuba, dominoes! Fun to watch the intensity the game engenders as partners move around the table. Poker faces give nothing away but winners are grinners! A lovely setting in thr heart of little Havana, a perfect stop for the weary tourist!

Yes, it's probably true that most Cuban players of the game of Dominoes are elderly men, but I remember playing dominoes as a young boy in Cuba and also playing at this Park when it was newly established back in the mid 1970's. I played here with some of the local residents although I was already living in North Carolina... More

If you want to engage in 5 minutes or an hour of casual entertainment, check out Domino Park in Little Havana and watch the elderly men play dominoes. Located within Maximo Gomez Park, off street parking is available behind the McDonald's off of SW 14th Avenue. I'd recommend off-street parking as 8th Ave is a major street so finding a... More

We found it a little under whelming - it's a little over a dozen tables and dominoes is only a third of them (chess and cards). But it's worth a quick visit, the players seem to do a good job ignoring the camera wielding tourists and gawkers - with a huge focus on the games in front of them.

This is a must see for tourists coming down to Miami. This is the only place in the world where you can see a bunch of people playing dominoes outside and give you a sense on how in cuba it was.

We were walking down Little Havana and came across this area. It is pretty awesome. When I was there I got to watch older men play dominoes. It was pretty cool. You can just people watch all day here, maybe you can even participate. If you enjoy people watching this is a great little place.

The small park is a hive of activity, with guys playing dominoes, but don't distract them. It is all very serious stuff.

If you are in Little Havana already, then by all means take a minute to walk in Domino Park. It is very small, and literally is just locals playing dominoes. It took all of 2 minutes to see.

Every table was filled with players and more were waiting to play. All men, except for one woman. What a great way for them to spend an afternoon!
