The boat ramp renovation at Boynton Beach’s Harvey E. Oyer Jr. Park has been completed and the docks and the park have reopened.
“They look great,” Kacy Young, the city’s parks and recreation director, said of the three ramps. The site also has “new stations for cleaning fish that are already very popular,” Young said.
The city held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Dec. 17, which was attended by the public, city officials and city staff.
The $1.25 million project was funded equally by the Palm Beach County penny sales tax — approved by voters to pay for park, road, bridge and other public projects — and the Florida Inland Navigation District. To accommodate the construction, the park was closed from mid-September through Dec. 1, 2022.
