WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — West Palm Beach representatives and residents gathered distantly Sunday at Currie Park to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

City leaders spoke about the history of the park and its founding by philanthropist George Graham Currie, one of the first city mayors who donated the land to West Palm Beach in 1920.

Officials also announced a new plan for the park.

“By 2022, I'm back here and you all are back here and we're cutting a ribbon on a new beautiful redeveloped Currie Park that we can all be proud of for many, many generations to come," Assistant City Administrator Armando Fana said.

The city plans on a new $8 million voter-approved bond which is waiting to be used exclusively for Currie Park and its expansion.
