Do you live in Monroe, Broward, or Miami-Dade county and concerned about rising sea levels? And. . . are you a fan of pickleball?

Many areas in the City of Lake Worth are well above sea level like the Sunset Ridge Park area, for example. That part of the City has some recently improved streets, new infrastructure, along with excellent sidewalks.

The downtown is very close to Sunset Ridge and there is easy access to I-95. Dixie Hwy. (the main thoroughfare) is a few blocks away, the beach is within biking distance, and a popular community garden is very close by as well. In addition, the nearby C-51 Canal may be getting a boat lift in the future giving everyone easy access by water to the Lake Worth Lagoon.

Sunset Ridge Park is located at 14th Avenue North between 'A' Street and 'D' Street. Here are the amenities: Two picnic pavilions, five lighted tennis courts, basketball court, multi-purpose field, BBQ grills, playground equipment, and there are restroom facilities. And now there is a pickleball league. How cool is that? Use this link to see all the parks in the City.

If you scroll up and down the right-hand column of this blog you'll learn about the great things happening here and find out more about the City. You'll also note we have challenges here as well. But doesn't every city?

However, with so many parts of this City at 15′ and 20′ above sea level you can scratch that concern off your list if you should decide to relocate to this little City. If you visit after dark just be careful. We have more than our fair share of potholes and issues with street lighting but we're working on that.

And don't forget about pickleball!
