Lake Worth Beach has a bounty of public parks and open space. The Lake Worth Beach is one of the last remaining large tracts of open, public space on the ocean in Southeast Florida.

The William O. Lockhart Municipal Pier, jutting into the Atlantic, is a recognizable symbol of the city; much of it was destroyed by Hurricane Frances in 2004, but has since been rebuilt and raised 1.5 m. The pier creates sandbars which catch ocean swells, making Lake Worth Beach one of the most consistent surfing spots in South Florida.
