Lake Worth Lagoon

Introduction
Located in Palm Beach County, Lake Worth Lagoon is an estuary spanning from PGA Boulevard to Boynton Beach Bridge at Ocean Avenue and separated from the Atlantic Ocean by barrier islands. The lagoon is a type of estuary where fresh water that runs off the land meets with salty ocean water. This mix of fresh and salt water creates brackish water that is unique to estuaries.
