Very good park. Lots to see and do for young kids. Great jungle gym to play on. Lots of different ins and outs. Great way to spend a Saturday with your kids.

Beautiful view. Great place to park. Small playground for kids. Nice for boat-watching. Other than that, there's not much to it. Of course, if there is an art event in the park, it's definitely worth a visit.

Veterans Park is on the Intercoastal. It is where you go to take the pleasant cruises from downtown Delray Beach. There is a playground for kids, with some fun climbing equipment, and it is fenced in case your bundle of joy is a runner. There is a Gazebo where I see folks doing yoga and Tai Chi sometimes. The benches... More

Nice park near the drawbridge. Could use some updating and painting but a pleasant place to stroll along the canal in the evening.

The kids love the huge playground and the adults enjoy sitting by the Intracoastal Waterway fishing or watching the boats go by.

This park is really close to everything downtown and offers the best view of the Intercoastal as any park in town. The park is big enough to accommodate the social blends of Delray both day and night. However, the only drawback for young families with kids is that the playground area is in bad need of reconditioning. The wood has... More

The park is nice and the best kept secret in town. Plenty of parking and well lit at night. We go there often for walks and it's close to the beach too.

Nice little park along the intracoastal waterway. Bring some food you can pick up from along Atlantic Avenue restaurants/cafes and relax a few moments from hot Florida sun. There is some nice wooden playground equipment for kids. Be SURE to keep an eye on the kids because there are no safety rails along the waterway. Little fountain and kiosk for... More

Veterans Park is next to a group of shops and restaurants. That traffic makes the park safer. Unfortunately, there is no security so large groups of teens and twenties hang out. The last time I went there 4 groups of teens totally 50 or 60 kids. It wasn't safe so we left. We tried again on the weekend - same... More

This park is right at the Atlantic Avenue bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway. There are great shops, a terrific art gallery, and restaurants nearby where you can watch to boats go under the bridge (or wait for its next opening, which most have to.)
