Palm Beach County, through the Environmental Resources Management and Parks & Recreation departments, will soon begin construction on a unique artificial reef at Phil Foster Park in the Lake Worth Lagoon.
This location was selected due to its proximity to the Lake Worth Inlet and clear oceanic water adjacent to a guarded county beach. An area immediately adjacent to the project is already well known to scuba divers for the variety of sea life found there. The new reef project plan has been reviewed and endorsed by the Palm Beach County Diving Association. It is expected to become an important ecotourism destination, making the area more accessible to a broader range of county residents and visitors.
The project area is located south of the guarded beach on the southern shoreline of Phil Foster Park. The beach will be open during construction with water access restricted in some areas. To learn more about this project, visit www.pbcgov.com/erm, then click on the “Project Fact Sheets” icon.
Phil Foster Park is located at 900 E. Blue Heron Blvd. in Riviera Beach. Parking is free.
