A small park at the intersection of Calle Ocho and SW 15th Ave, named in honor of Maximo Gomez, the commander of the Cuban troops during its War of Independence in the late 19th century. 15th Ave between Calle Ocho and 9th St is paved with a beautiful wavy brick pattern with images of dominoes, and there are domino motifs throughout the design of the park, which owe its influence to the large crowd of 55-year-old-and-up men who gather here every day to play this and other tabletop games. Visitors, of course, are welcome to observe the greatest center of public street life in Little Havana.
