The Royal Park Bridge, West Palm Beach

The Royal Park Bridge stands as a historic landmark connecting Palm Beach with West Palm Beach over the picturesque Intracoastal Waterway in Florida. As the second of the three bridges linking these two vibrant communities, the Royal Park Bridge has played a crucial role in facilitating transportation and connectivity in the region for nearly nine decades. Originally constructed in the early 20th century, the bridge underwent recent renovations to address significant damage caused by marine borers to its timber pilings.

Following the discovery of severe damage to the timber pilings in the arch bridge, the Royal Park Bridge underwent a comprehensive renovation project to ensure its structural integrity and longevity. Despite being nearly 90 years old, the bridge now stands as a testament to enduring engineering and craftsmanship, serving as a vital artery for residents and visitors traveling between Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. As the oldest bridge in West Palm Beach, the Royal Park Bridge holds significant historical and cultural significance, symbolizing the evolution of transportation infrastructure in the region.

Today, the Royal Park Bridge continues to serve as a vital lifeline, offering convenient access for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists traversing between Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. With its timeless architecture and scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway, the bridge remains a beloved icon in the local community.
