Lake Worth is proud of both its historic past and its dynamic future.  New housing is becoming available throughout the City.  Historic districts have been established to help preserve the old Florida architecture. City Hall is part of the Old Town National Register Historic District and the City Hall Annex is listed as a National Register landmark.  But Lake Worth is also a city embracing change.

Located in coastal central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is easily accessible by road, rail, air and water.  A large and diverse work force is available to support new business from light industrial to home occupations.  In December 2004, the City annexed approximately 74 acres of property in the Park of Commerce.  The purpose of the annexation was to increase the potential of employment within our municipal boundaries by increasing our capacity to accommodate heavy commercial and low to high traffic generating industrial uses.

Education is strongly represented in Lake Worth. Four public elementary schools– all newly rebuilt or remodeled- and a middle school as well as private and parochial schools are located in the City and the surrounding area.  Lake Worth High School, the premier public high school in Palm Beach County, continues a tradition of excellence spanning more than 65 years by boasting magnet and prototype programs that have won national recognition for excellence.  Palm Beach State College is located two miles west of downtown while Florida Atlantic University is a 20-minute drive away.  Both offer extended adult programs as well as full-time curricula.
