Â Parks & Recreation in West Palm BeachÂ Â If you don't know Howard Park you might want to get to know it !!!
Howard Park is a lovely green oasis in central Palm Beach County in central West Palm Beach.Â Within the Historic Grandview Heights neighborhood it featuresÂ a heart trail,Â basketball courts, softball diamond, picnic tables, the newly famous "City Paws" dog park...a special canine park within the park... where dog owners and dogs 'meet and greet'.Â Plus- check out the Recreation Center with Pilates, Jazzercise, and other offerings.Â ThereÂ are also Tennis Courts and a lake (presently being re-landscaped and beautfied).Â Also, adjoining Howard Park is The Armory Arts Center with revolving art exhibitions and an adult and childrens art school.Â
But, my favorite thing at Howard Park are the venerable old Banyan Trees, few of which are left in the City, but there are flourishing here in all their glory.
And did I say that this 'oasis in the city' is directly behind the Convention Center and only a block from CityPlace.Â Check it out and enjoy !
