In Lake Park, Florida, the living is easy; just ask the 8,500 residents who call this idyllic city home! Here, you'll find that small town atmosphere, along with convenient access to urban amenities in the nearby city of West Palm Beach, just a few miles to the south. Nestled between Palm Beach Gardens and the Intracoastal Waterway, Lake Park offers laid-back south Florida living at its best.
This small city is nicknamed the "Jewel of the Palm Beaches," and it's easy to see why. Snorkeling fans flock to Lake City's waterfront to explore the snorkeling trail at Phil Foster Park, a carefully designed underwater playground that provides reef habitat for local aquatic life. It's the ideal place to see sea horses, octopi, and lots of colorful fish. If diving is your passion, hop on a local charter and do a bit of shark or reef diving in the Atlantic. If you're not feeling that adventurous, heads to the Florida Surfing Museum to wander among the vintage surf boards and interactive displays that bring the local and regional history of surfing to life.
If golf is your passion, you're in luck. With more than eight courses within a 10-mile radius, the most difficult choice you make will be which links to play that day. And for even more outdoor fun, Lake Park is home to many parks and green areas, including the Lake Park Scrub Natural Area. Once known as Silver Beach, this 56-acre preserve is waiting to be explored on foot or by bike. If you want to improve your swing, the Lake Park Tennis Center offers courts and classes for all ages.
Lake Park is also home to a thriving downtown area, featuring plenty of eateries, shops and businesses. For a taste of local culture, take in a show at the Kelsey Theater. This small convention center and performing arts venue serves as the heart of this close-knit community. History buffs will appreciate the city's rich past; originally planned in the 1920s, many original buildings remain around town and offer prime examples of the Craftsman Bungalow, Mission, Mediterranean Revival, and Masonry and Frame Vernacular styles of architecture that are so iconic to south Florida homes.
