Established in 1989, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is the only state park located in Palm Beach County. Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lake Worth Lagoon, the 438-acre park includes seven species of plants and twenty-two species of animals designated as endangered or threatened.
Students in Grades 1-12 visit John D. MacArthur Beach State Park to take part in the Environmental Education Programs. VoLo Foundation provides funding in support of future environmentalists, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and many more to provide them with hands-on learning experiences at the park. Through this program, students learn about the natural habitats in their own backyards, how to protect our planet and to act as environmental stewards.
