Boynton Beach Resources


Located in south Florida’s Palm Beach County, the City of Boynton Beach is the third largest municipality in Palm Beach County with an estimated population of approximately 78,000 residents. Residents of Boynton Beach enjoy a tropical lifestyle with waterfront dining, abundant shopping and lively entertainment throughout the week.  With hundreds of restaurants, outdoor lifestyle shopping centers and a regional mall, residents do not have to travel outside the City to dine, shop or to be entertained. 

 The City operates 8 recreation centers, 29 parks, a swimming pool, a municipal beach, and lots of youth, teen, adult and senior programs.  Professional, dedicated staff members, with the assistance of valuable volunteers, manage the year-round recreation programs and activities and maintain parks and open spaces for the enjoyment of people of all ages and abilities.

 Our downtown area is undergoing a strong redevelopment effort including a multi-million dollar Town Square project. The Congress Avenue area from Gateway Boulevard south has provided an enormous impact on the developing business district, home to the Boynton Beach Mall, Boynton Town Center and Renaissance Commons and home of the Chamber of Commerce.

 Here you will find a strong sense of community. Whatever lifestyle you seek, we have it here in Boynton Beach! Upscale rental communities on the Intracoastal waterway, condominiums, luxury single family homes and estates, world class golf communities and of course, original ”old Florida’ neighborhoods” offering the charm and intimacy of years ago.  For more information please call the chamber offices at 561-732-9501.
