Lyman Kayak Park in Lantana is a great place for paddlers to slip their human-powered vessels into the water away from the bustle of Sportsman’s Park, where the launch ramps are used mostly for powerboats.
The park’s 30 parking spaces also serve the patrons of shops and restaurants along Ocean Avenue. The park is at 106 N. Lake Drive, about a block north of Ocean Avenue. Parking is free but limited to three hours.
In addition to a kayak launching area and parking lot, the park features a 180-foot pier overlooking the Lake Worth Lagoon, open space covered with grass, bicycle racks and benches.
No dogs are allowed in the kayak park because of an ordinance that prohibits pets at all town facilities (except the dog park at Maddock Park on West Drew Street). Even though it’s close to the traffic of Ocean Avenue and is flanked by waterfront condos, Lyman Kayak Park offers visitors a taste of nature.
When: The Park opens at sunrise and closes at sundown. The parking lot is open 24 hours 7 days a week.
Where: 106 N. Lake Drive, Lantana, FL 33462
