Ocean Ridge, Florida: Water Activities and Waves

Ocean Ridge, FLOcean Ridge, Florida, was once part of the larger town of Boynton Beach. New settlers began arriving in large numbers in 1885, mostly from the Midwest. In the 1890s the area was advertised as the "most tropical part of the State and insuring the most even temperatures." In 1931, the state of Florida passed legislature to separate the portion into what we now call Ocean Ridge.

Ocean Ridge has many water activities. Located on North Ocean Boulevard, the 8.5 acre Ocean Ridge Hammock Park is a great place for beachfront saltwater fishing. Also, the increased nursery and feeding habitat for fisheries and wildlife of the Ocean Ridge Natural Area is a popular site for recreational day use by the public with a walking trail, two-story observation platform and educational kiosk.
