One of the most sought after areas in Palm Beach County is the Town of Ocean Ridge. It is a quaint coastal community largely made up of water.

The Neighborhood

Founded in 1931, Ocean Ridge used to be known as the Town of Boynton Beach as it was part of that said area before. Due to several tax disputes and debt load, homeowners decided to create their own community. In 1939, they adapted the name Ocean Ridge in order to separate them from the Boynton Beach neighborhood.

The low-density and low-key community is bounded by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. It has the neighborhoods of Hypoluxo and Manalapan to the north and Briny Breezes and Gulf Stream to the south.

Since it covers a small area in Palm Beach, not many people know that a beautiful town like Ocean Ridge exists. But the community prefers it that way, making it an ideal community to settle in for those who are looking for a quiet and peaceful enclave near the ocean and the city.

The community has its own police department that maintains law and order. These police officers patrol the 26-mile paved roadways of the town 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. They are fully equipped with the latest technology to ensure the protection of Ocean Ridge residents. The department is made up of one Chief of Police, two Lieutenants, four Sergeants and ten full-time police officers. To augment them, there are also seven reserve police officers.

Things To Do

Within the Town of Ocean Ridge are several lush parks and greenery. This includes the Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park (Public Beach), Ocean Inlet Park, Ocean Ridge Hammock Park and the Ocean Ridge Natural Area.

Ocean Ridge Natural Area does not have any parking areas as it can only be accessed via biking, boating or walking. Spanning 12.3 hectares, Ocean Ridge Natural Area is a great place for residents to explore nature and wilderness.

Ocean Ridge Hammock Park is a great area for saltwater fishing. History buffs may visit the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and the Andrews Home – the oldest Boynton Beach home.
