NOTICE: The boat ramps at Pioneer Canal Park will be closed indefinitely. An assessment was conducted by Public Works, Engineering & Construction Services and the ramps were deemed unsafe. City staff is working on a design. Once the design is completed, we will look into funding and completing the project as designed.

The design of the boat ramp and dock improvements was approved by the Boynton Beach City Commission at its October 17 meeting.
