Lake Worth is a coastal city in Palm Beach County, Florida, located between Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, FL. Now known as the Lake Worth Lagoon, the City of Lake Worth was originally named for this body of water situated along the city's eastern border.

The real estate for sale in the Lake Worth area, and the many neighborhoods that make up the city, is comprised of an array of different architectural styles and home prices.

The History of Lake Worth
The city has a rich history and is protective of its historic architectural fabric. Over 1,000 historic buildings contribute to the human scale and charm of the downtown and residential areas. Lake Worth was settled in the late 1800's just after Congress passed the Homestead Act of 1862, and in 1896 Henry Flagler extended his rail line south from West Palm Beach, making Lake Worth more accessible for new settlers. In 1912, the Lake Worth was formally incorporated and in January of that year Lake Avenue became the first street to be graded and rocked. As the town began to become more populated, the need to construct a dock at the foot of Lake Avenue became obvious to residents; it extended 1,000 feet into the Lake Worth Lagoon. Shortly after, Bryant Park was established and it remains beautiful and active to this day, complete with a modern bandshell for festivals, concerts, and recreational activities.
As settlers moved to Lake Worth in the early twentieth century, they built homes, grocery stores, churches and restaurants. During the summer of 1912, a survey of the town was completed that laid out fifty-five miles of streets, and nearly as many miles of alleys, as well as 7,000 residential lots ranging in size from 25 to 50 feet wide. The small lot sizes were part of a sales tactic that coupled the purchase of multiple acres of farm land west of the community with a small town lot in present-day Lake Worth.
After a short period of neglect and decline in the 1980s and 1990s, the downtown area has seen a huge resurgence in interest and now sports an array of art galleries, sidewalk cafes and night clubs. Once moribund property values have soared. The city's main street, Lake Avenue, contains some of the oldest commercial structures in south Florida, including the Lake Worth Playhouse.

Lake Worth's Residential Neighborhoods
The City of Lake Worth has a great selection of residential communities that cover both middle class areas and upper-tier neighborhoods, both family-oriented and for active adults and retirees. Some mid-priced communities include Isola Bella, Lake Charleston, Winston Trails, Smith Farms, Wycliffe Golf & Country Club, Lakes of Sherbrooke, and Valencia Shores, an active adult (55+) community. Upper-end communities include San Messina, Legend Lake Estates, Countryside Estates, and more. As with most cities in South Florida, Lake Worth was built and developed from east to west, therefore you will find some older construction with no homeowner's association or amenities. In the newer areas on the west side of Lake Worth you will find beautifully manicured, planned developments, with gated entrances, resort-style amenities and homeowner's associations.
Lake Worth & Hypoluxo's Coastal Communities
Located just to the south of Lake Worth, Lantana and Hypoluxo offer several waterfront neighborhoods with multi-million dollar homes for sale in neighborhoods like Hypoluxo Island, as well as some more reasonably priced condominiums in newer developments like The Moorings at Lantana, Mariner's Cay, and the Yacht Club on the Intracoastal. To the east of these communities lies Manalapan, which is an island community comprised of luxurious waterfront estate homes.
Recreation and Attractions in Lake Worth
The City is the geographic and artistic center of Palm Beach County. The downtown is considered the artistic soul of Lake Worth with a historic theater and a museum, live music clubs, coffee houses, art galleries, antique malls, retail stores, and many restaurants. Lake Worth contains a bounty of public parks and open space. The Municipal Beach is one of the last remaining large tracts of open, public space on the ocean in southeast Florida. Historically, it has always been a destination complete with a Casino building with retail shops. Currently, a proposal to renovate the beach park is underway through a public/private partnership.
Lake Worth Golf Club
Established in 1927, the Lake Worth Golf Club has been the epicenter of the community. The golf course is comprised of a unique "old Florida" design with a scenic 6,100 yard, par-70 course located along 1.2 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway. The Club offers memberships to both residents and non-residents of Lake Worth at reasonable prices.
