Lake Worth Lagoon

<p>Lake Worth Lagoon is a lagoon located in the Lake Worth city limits. The Lagoon runs parallel with the Atlantic Ocean, but is separated by what are called barrier beaches. The local government created two inlets into the Atlantic Ocean so that when it rains for an extended period, the water thrust into the Lagoon has an outlet. The lake is freshwater and at times, its water seeps into the Everglades in the west. The lagoon is surrounded by developed urban area, and there is a plan in place called the Lake Worth Lagoon Management Plan, which is supposed to improve water quality and reduce pollution in the lagoon.</p>

<p>Recreation in the city of Lake Worth comes in the form of public parks, open space, and majestic beaches. The Municipal Beach is a wide open space that has become a tourist destination. It currently holds a casino flush with retail buildings, shops, restaurants, and other amenities. The William O. Lockhart Municipal Pier, which was a longtime symbol of the beach, was damaged in a Hurricane earlier in the decade, and has yet to have been rebuilt. Recently, a new boardwalk on the beach was opened the Snook Islands Recreation Boardwalk which offers a kayak launch, a fishing pier, and a nature walk.</p>
