A Message From Boynton Beach's Elected Officials, City Manager and CRA Executive Director
Message from Leadership
The intention in creating a thriving government and cultural center is to improve the economic well-being and quality of life for all who work, live, and visit Boynton Beach. When visionaries and city leaders began imagining this major project, residents were included in the process. The community confirmed that diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and safety were top priorities for Boynton Beach while preserving the city’s rich history. Town Square delivers on that promise.
The 20-acre development will be a place for connecting – connecting the city’s historic past to its vibrant future; residents to each other; community members and visitors to arts, culture and other activities. There will be learning opportunities at the City Library, Cultural Center, and Schoolhouse Children’s Museum, and business opportunities through the incubator space in City Hall. From community to culture to commerce, Town Square will offer all this and so much more.
History has been preserved at the historic Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and throughout the careful renovation of the 1927 Boynton Beach High School into the new Boynton Beach Cultural Center.
Art in Public Places is indelibly woven throughout the site. Two new playgrounds include some of the most innovative play equipment in South Florida and the amphitheater will offer entertainment for all ages.
Retail stores, restaurants, a hotel, and residential units will provide opportunities for diverse housing and round out the many offerings at Town Square. On-street parking, structured parking and surface parking will offer convenient parking for everyone.
Ocean Avenue will become a destination with shops, cafés and places for socializing. All of these positive changes will greatly benefit the community by drawing people from all over and creating a hub of constant activity in Downtown Boynton.
