Veteran's Park in east Delray Beach is located adjacent to the Intracoastal drawbridge on Atlantic Avenue. Parking is located to the north and to the west of the park. Come to play at the large wooden playgrounds or sit waterside and watch the boats go by. The drawbirdge is always a favorite with the kids. A large pavillion sits on an open green area perfect for running and cavorting. Events are held in the pavillion and on the grounds throughout the year. The onsite Recreation Center can be rented and offers classes year round for all ages. The area just west of the park currently contains a small shopping center with restaurants and boutiques. There are future plans approved to construct new shops and apartments there. They may update the playground at that time or just a lot of messy construction.
