Dreher Park

Named for West Palm Beach's first parks director, Dreher Park covers 113 acres just south of downtown West Palm Beach. Housed in the park are the Palm Beach Zoo and a small science museum (for now, until it moves to its new location). The park offers a wide variety of pasttimes including picnic shelters (with charcoal grills), rental pavilions, and playgrounds. At least one of the smaller "playgrounds" is more like an interactive sculpture - very futuristic and artistic in look, yet designed for climbing and play. There are lakes and a fishing pier, walking paths, and lots of open space for frisbee-throwing or simply running around. As a novelty for those of us who've been in South Florida for a while, there are some man-made "hills", higher than most bumps in the natural landscape, and just perfect for rolling down! A very peaceful park, you'll spend a relaxing time here while the kids romp.
