Ocean Inlet Park, Ocean Ridge, Palm Beach FL

Description

Ocean Inlet Park in Ocean Ridge (the town on the coast next to Boynton Beach) is a serene place. Here, there is lush tropical vegetation with blue water beyond. It's wonderful to sit at the playground and take in the view.
The playground has chimes that ring out beautifully, plus some fun climbing and sliding. It is based in sand, which is always fun.
The waterway at this park is not clean. We hoped to wade in it but it smelled so bad! Definitely not recommended.
There are boats docked and pelicans balancing on wooden posts- fun to look at. Restrooms and beach showers make it a handy place. You can walk across the street to Inlet Beach from here and watch the pelicans dive bombing into the water! The parking at this park is used for beach parking so there can sometimes be a wait in the middle of the day on the weekend or during Spring Break.
For a fun children's museum nearby, check out Schoolhouse Children's Museum in Boynton Beach, which has a large castle playground next to it called Kids Kingdom.
