Get excited about the Blueway Trail: Connecting our Intracoastal to the inland Chain of Lakes in Palm Beach County, from Delray Beach to Town of Jupiter

Visit Spillway Park in Lake Worth to get a close-up look. From Federal Hwy. go west on Maryland Ave. to the dead end. Park has a walking trail, picnic tables, BBQ grills, pet station, plenty of parking, and restrooms.

Where is this project? In between the cities of Lake Worth and West Palm Beach. From Dixie Hwy. you can see the S-155 Spillway structure looking east and from Federal Hwy. looking to the west: Here is more information (click on images to enlarge):
Use this link for the latest news, including the recommendations and support of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC). Take note of the boat lift and new fishing docks.
The TCRPC's Kim DeLaney gave a presentation to the Lake Worth City Commission. Learn more about that using this link.
Once the project is complete small boats, kayakers, canoers, and ecotourists will be able to bypass the S-155 Spillway. Since the 1950's that structure has blocked public access.
For many County residents, among them former Lake Worth City commissioners, the Blueway Trail is a dream come true.
