Harvey E. Oyer Park, on North Federal Highway, will be closed for renovations from Sept. 12 through mid-November.
During those months the Boynton Beach park’s three boat ramps will undergo a $1.25 million face-lift and are scheduled to reopen just in time for the winter season.
The work will be paid for by Palm Beach County’s 1-cent sales surtax and the Florida Inland Navigation District.

Pioneer Canal Park seeks your votes for prize money
In other boat ramp news, the city is competing for $75,000 in prize money to add a boat ramp and observation deck at Pioneer Canal Park at 848 NW 13th Ave.
The city is asking residents to visit niagaraperkyourpark.com/parks/pioneer-canal-park and vote for the Pioneer Canal Park project.
The “Perk Your Park” contest is offered by the National Recreation and Park Association. Pioneer Canal Park is one of five South Florida parks in the competition.
If the city wins one of the top three spots — and the $75,000 in prize money — the improvements would allow access to waterway activities that include kayaking, boating, fishing and observing wildlife.
Voting runs through Sept. 12, and each individual may cast a vote daily. Winners will be announced on Oct. 12.
