Boynton Lakes Park

Boynton Lakes Park is named for the neighborhood it finds itself in. The park was completed in 1992 and has since been a gathering point for nearby residents young and old, with open space and amenities for all manner of activities. Though just a small patch in our beautiful Boynton, the centrality of the park and its allowance of leashed dogs ensure that Boynton Lakes Park remains a place where families come to play.

Jaycee Park

Jaycee Park is also known as Oceanfront Park, sitting along with one of the most visited areas on all of Boynton Beach.

Betty Thomas Park

The City of Boynton Beach planned for a park in southeast Boynton since the early 1980s, with a master plan developed and held until the acquisition of the land that would become Betty Thomas Park. The land was procured in 2001, while the ribbon was cut on March 24th, 2007. Named for longtime local and Former Parks & Rec Advisory Board Chair, Betty Thomas, the park provides basketball courts, a playground, an expanded open play area, and public restrooms.

Seacrest Scrub

The Seacrest Scrub is one of three conservation-focused parks dotting Boynton Beach. Located along the commonly traversed Seacrest Boulevard, this patch of deciduous, low-lying scrub is a few feet north of the Delray Beach border. Thus, its nature trails offer a natural look at our flora and fauna to a well-balanced visitor base spanning Delray to the south and the majority of Boynton Beach to the north.  These small scrubs are part of a larger countywide system of natural preservation. A "scrub," in the vernacular of Florida forestry is a pine & palmetto flatwood ecosystem primarily occurring in dry coastal ridge soils, often occupying ancient coastlines long-receded over time. Visit the City of Boynton's website to visit the other natural preserves the city has kept safe for our future.
