Several geographical features in Palm Beach County confusingly use the words "Lake Worth". The city of Lake Worth is named after a lake now usually called Lake Worth Lagoon. This lake opens to the Atlantic ocean at the Port of Palm Beach via the Lake Worth Inlet. Another inlet exists further south at Boynton Beach. The port and two inlets are all distant from the city of Lake Worth. The lake is a long channel that spans much of Palm Beach County; indeed the Intracoastal Waterway traverses the length of the lake. The manmade inlets to the ocean have replaced the natural freshwater with saltwater, such that the lake is actually now a tidal body, instead of a true lake.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 16.7 km² (6.5 mi²). 14.6 km² (5.6 mi²) of it is land and 2.1 km² (0.8 mi²) of it (12.69%) is water.

The USDA has mapped most of Lake Worth in the Southern Florida Flatwoods land resource area.[2] Deep, poorly drained acidic sandy soils are typical for the area; they have gray topsoil, white subsoil, and a dark hardpan. Much of Lake Worth is built on a rapidly drained white or gray sand which is too dry and infertile to support vigorous plant growth. The western outskirts of Lake Worth are in the Southern Florida Lowlands area. Topsoils there are sandy, but the subsoils have a much higher content of clay and the soils are relatively fertile. As in the flatwoods, these soils are poorly drained for many purposes unless drainage systems are installed.[3] The United States Department of Agriculture (also called the Agriculture Department, or USDA) is a United States Federal Executive Department (or Cabinet Department). ...

Lake Worth bills itself as "Where The Tropics Begin." Many tropical plants grow in the city; among the more prominent examples are mahogany, royal poinciana and many species of palm, including coconut palm. African tulip tree, avocado and many species of eucalyptus may also be found, although they are on the city's list of trees to avoid. Temperate-zone trees native to Lake Worth or Palm Beach County include American elm, live oak, red maple, red mulberry and slash pine. Species which are grown south of their native areas include American sweetgum, Shumard oak and tulip tree.

Although the incorporated city of Lake Worth is small geographically, as is common in Palm Beach County, a large unincorporated urbanized area with a Lake Worth postal address lies to the west of the city, and includes the Census Designated Place of Lake Worth Corridor, as well as neighborhoods such as "The Fountains", Lago Lucerne, Lake Osbourne Estates, Melaleuca Lane Corridor, Lake Charleston, and Palm Beach National. The 2006 Census estimates this urbanized area's population as 154,892. The total population of both incorporated and unincorporated Lake Worth is estimated by the 2006 Census to be 190,377.


History

Lake Worth City Hall

Local folklore has it that the first post office in the Lake Worth area was founded in the 1880s by a married African American couple who were freed slaves. The initial name for the post office was Jewel. The post office was located in a small dry good shop which the couple operated to serve the lake traffic which connected the small pioneer homesteads located along the banks of the Lake Worth lagoon.

After Henry Flagler extended his rail line south from West Palm Beach to Miami in 1896, a land development scheme was created to plant a townsite between the railroad and the lake. Purchasers of lots within the townsite would also receive a larger plot of land west of town for agricutural use. The initial name proposed for the new town was Lucerne. However, the U.S. Post Office refused to accept the name because there already was a Lucerne, Florida post office. Therefore, the city fathers settled on the name Lake Worth, for the lake on which the fledgling town was sited. One of the main streets was named Lucerne Avenue instead. The city was officially incorporated in 1912. Many of the first residents were farmers from other parts of the American south and mid-west, looking to benefit from the growing winter vegetable market of the time. The city benefited with the rest of south Florida during the Florida land boom of the 1920's. A wooden automobile traffic bridge over Lake Worth was completed in 1919. The first casino and municipal beach complex was completed shortly thereafter. The 1920s also saw the completion of the Gulfstream Hotel, which towers over the downtown to this day.

The city was severely damaged in the 1928 hurricane, toppling the bell tower on the elementary school (today the City Hall Annex) and destroying the beachfront casino and automobile bridge over Lake Worth. This led to a severe economic decline within the community which led into the Great Depression. Things were so dire in the city in the 1930s, that FDR's Works Progress Administration built a striking, moorish-styled "City Gymnasium" on the corner of Lake Avenue and Dixie Highway to provide employment for the impoverished citizenry.

Development started again after World War II with many modest pensioners, especially from Quebec, Finland and eventually Germany, moving to the city and building 1,000 square foot cottages.

Culture

Though Lake Worth is a considered a suburb of West Palm Beach, the city's uptown area has developed a distinct character and is a regular destination for both tourists and residents of South Florida. Downtown Lake Worth is home to the Lake Worth Playhouse, and the Museum of the City of Lake Worth. Yearly festivals such as the Street Painting Festival and Finlandia Week (a celebration of Lake Worth's Finnish population) attract thousands of people.

Recreation

Lake Worth contains a bounty of public parks and open space. The Municipal Beach is one of the last remaining large tracts of public open space on the ocean in southeast Florida. Attempts to redevelop the site with a larger private component such as hotels chain shops and restaurants and condos, have met fierce opposition from city residents. The City Pier, jutting into the Atlantic, was once a proud symbol of the city. However, much of it was destroyed by Hurricane Frances in 2004. Bryant Park, downtown on Lake Worth, has a 1920s bandshell which is used for festivals and events year round. The nearby municipal golf course offers low cost golfing with spectacular views of Lake Worth and Palm Beach beyond. On the west side of town, the County owned John Prince Park, follows meandering shores of Lake Osbourne and offers miles of bike and walking trails as well as hundreds of acres for picnicking, volleyball and even overnight camping.
