The City of West Palm Beach’s downtown waterfront revitalization recently took a major step forward with the opening of three new public docks along Flagler Drive.
Use of the three docks is free, including for boaters. However, rafts are not permitted to use the docks. Commercial vessels may only dock if they have a City-issued permit. The docks are open seven days a week from 5:00 a.m. to midnight. Boaters are required to register with the dock supervisor by calling 561-822-2222. Dock 1 (the northern-most dock) has a maximum capacity of 12 vessels, dock 2 (the middle dock) has a maximum capacity of 24, and dock 3 (the southern-most dock) has a maximum of 12.
The middle dock is the main pedestrian dock, offering the perfect spot for families taking a walk, businesses people looking for a tranquil spot to enjoy lunch or visitors soaking in the downtown scenery. It features unique underwater ecosystems, planters with native plants, shaded seating areas for the public and day docking for boaters.
