The Palm Beach Waterfront
The Photographic Centre
The Palm Beach Photographic Centre, which operates from a state-of-the-art home in downtown, is a wonderful facility for amateur and professional photographers alike.
The Beaches of Palm Beach
West Palm Beaches Waterfront runs for six miles along Flagler Drive with the downtown accessed area at its heart.
Until the 1950’s, the Waterfront area was delightfully landscaped and a leisure and recreation hotspot for city residents.
While unsympathetic development in the 60’s had a serious downgrading effect on the area, it has now been transformed to meet and match the renaissance that has swept through the rest of the city.
Artists impressions of the original layout for the waterfront area have formed the guiding influence in the six year project to create a 21st Century facility that will attract and reward residents and visitors alike.
The new waterfront layout is a perfect example of what can be achieved with vision and passionate commitment. It really does ‘embraces the past to realise the future’ as the folks here are keen to point out.
Alive and a hive of activity
The new West Palm Beach Waterfront, which covers 12.5 acres along the Intra Coastal waterway, now embraces a park and water gardens; boat landing and esplanade; an environmentally innovative living dock; two boat piers and South Cove walkways.
There are also a string of vibrant bars and restaurants.
The circular Palm Stage hosts a variety of live performances including the always popular Thursday Clematis by Night.
Having the word beach in West Palm Beach suggests there is sand and sea to be had here and there is – in abundance.
The area is banded The Palm Beaches and, with 13 or more distinct beach locations along 47 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline there will be one – probably many more – to suit.
MacArthur Beach State Park
One I must mention is the MacArthur Beach State Park.
The park has two miles of unspoilt beach reached across a wooden causeway from a nature preserve.
There are also walking trails through the mangroves and kayaking across the estuary to Lake Worth Cove and Munyon Island.
