Lakeside Challenger Park


Lakeside Challenger Park


Lakeside Challenger Park is located on a small lake at the edge of Royal Palm Beach in the county of Palm Beach. This park occupies 4.8 acres in a beautiful area. It offers perfect facilities for family birthday parties in one of the five gazebos that are in the park. These are also ideal settings for looking at the beautiful lake while being protected from the sun. Restroom facilities are available. While this park is not a famous recreational area, it is well loved by everyone who spends time here.

The fishing dock offers some great fishing with bass being the most frequent catch. The park is dotted with park benches which have been refurbished by the village boy scout troop. The scouts have also planted new bushes and put down mulch. 

The park is home for a memorial to the astronauts who died on the Challenger. The astronauts are memorialized by a boulder with plaques for each astronaut. This is a special tribute to the seven astronauts who perished aboard the Challenger, and it is an attraction for many visitors.

The park's setting is dotted with beautiful palm trees and stone walkways that extend around the lake. Unique porch type swings are set along the walkway, and people really enjoy these for reading or just taking advantage of the relaxing swaying movement these swings offer.

This is a park for relaxing and soaking up the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Or, it is a great place for family picnics and enjoying time with children and friends. If the family wishes to explore other nearby parks, a favorite is the Calypso Bay Waterpark which features exciting entertainment for the entire family. The very tall water slides are thrilling and the exciting river ride which is 897 feet in length is a special experience.
