Mangrove Park

Mangrove Park Mangrove Park in Boynton Beach is a 12-acre natural area bordering the Intracoastal Waterway. A boardwalk leads the visitor through the mangrove swamps to the edge of the Intracoastal. I expected tons of mosquitoes, but there were none (in September 2010).

This park is particularly interesting as it has three or so tidal inlets, so the water level changes regularly. We went at low tide, so there wasn't a whole lot of water. The only wildlife we saw were crabs and banana spiders, but there is allegedly sometimes other wildlife, including birds and even manatees!

The land that houses this park is leased from the Diocese of Palm Beach County, and it's located right next to St. Mark's Catholic Church. Mangrove park has restrooms, a bike rack, and benches, and is open sunrise to sunset.
