Named after the body of water along its eastern border, Lake Worth is a city in Palm Beach County, Florida. Considered the center of Palm Beach both artistically and geographically, it is a dynamic and multi-cultural city lined with neoclassical buildings, art galleries, antique malls, museums, and coffee houses. The coastal city is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Worth Lagoon on the east and Lake Osborne on the west. Lake Worth has a bounty of public parks and open space – one of which is Lake Worth Beach. One notable structure that Lake Worth prides in is Bryant Park, located in downtown Lake Worth, and features band shell built in the 1920s and is used in events and festivals. Moreover, Florida is not Florida without golf. The city houses a municipal golf course overlooking Lake Worth and Palm Beach.
Other activities locals and tourists can enjoy include biking and camping as well as enjoying trails and scenic views at John Prince Memorial Park that features acres of land perfect for picnics and recreational activities. In 2012, the opening of Snook Islands Natural Area north side of Bryant Park took recreational activities to another level. The 118 acre area features a kayak launch, 8 mooring slips, a fishing pier, and nature walk along the mangroves. The place is also perfect for bird watching – herons, ibises, egrets, and pelicans are some of the usually spotted birds - along with sea animals such as dolphins and manatees.
