Lake Park Harbor Marina
Lake Park Harbor Marina is a full-service wet storage facility with two boat launch ramps, a fueling facility, ship store, pump-out facilities, as well as floating and fixed piers that can accommodate boats up to 80’ in length.
The marina was built in 1961 and was redeveloped in 2006.
Jamie Hart, an employee of the Town of Lake Park, has been the Marina Director there since June 2012. He was previously the Supervisor of Marine Facilities for the City of Fort Lauderdale for about 25 years.
Hart says cruisers should come to Lake Park Harbor because it offers the second lowest rates in the area (next to the City of Riviera Beach). “We are presently in the process of lowering our rates,” Hart says. “When approved by the Town Commission, we will have the lowest rates in the area, according to a survey previously conducted of marinas within a 2-3 mile radius.”
Lake Park Harbor Marina offers clean facilities, impeccable service, and lots of activities available, including fishing tournaments, charter dive boat operations, and a Sunset Celebration the last Friday of every month.
Depending on the time of year, Lake Park Harbor Marina in Lake Park, Florida, offers rates from $19.50/foot to $28.50/foot.

Hart says most of the marina’s customers prefer the floating docks, due to how easily accessible it is from the ICW. “The facility has a large amount of property and grassy area that is conducive for events and similar activities, unlike most marinas.” They anticipate adding events to the calendar during the next year in order to take advantage of the extra space and increase the exposure of the marina.
There are a lot of things that set Lake Park Marina apart from other marinas in the area. “There are several marinas in the vicinity of the Lake Worth Inlet,” divulges Hart. “But the Lake Park Harbor Marina is the only marina within a close proximity to the inlet that has a breakwater for protection of boats docked along the ICW.”
In other words, the ICW is very rough due to the adjacent boating activity or during a storm. However, the boats docked at their marina are fully protected from wake damage, whereas the boats docked at other marinas are fully exposed to excessive wake because they do not have sufficient breakwater for protection purposes. “This is a big plus for our marina because we are the only marina in the area that can legitimately provide safe harbor for boats during rough conditions or during a hurricane,” Hart says.
It’s also the only marina in the North Palm Beach area that allows overnight boat trailer parking for over 48 hours.
