Update: More county parks to reopen after Hurricane Irma

The Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department reopened nine parks on Saturday, September 16. These parks are in addition to the 45 parks and facilities that were previously opened for general use Thursday and Friday following extensive damage assessments, safety inspections and debris removal.

Reverend Leon Camel Jr. Park located at 85 Canal Street in Belle Glade opened last weekend for general use. Specialized areas such as sports playing fields, courts, pools and other facilities located inside the parks may remain closed for safety reasons.
