Royal Palm Beach

The village of Royal Palm Beach is located in central Palm Beach CountyFlorida. Neighbors include Wellington to the south, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach to the east and Palm Beach Gardens to the north. This residential village really a network of several communities in individual development areas has its own schools, health care, government and town infrastructure in addition to being covered by Palm Beach County services like fire and emergency response. 

Miami developer Arthur Desser saw a future for the area once a vast wilderness that led to the initial development of the village of Royal Palm Beach. In 1959 the state legislature granted the young development a charter. During the 1980s Royal Palm Beach was one of the fastest-growing communities of its kind in the United States. In 1986, Palms West Hospital and Wellington Regional Medical Center opened, and both have major expansion projects in the works. The hospitals brought many new medical office complexes to the area. The village of around 30,000 residents is committed to maintaining a clean, safe, family-oriented community. Parks and green spaces have always been important throughout the evolution and growth of Royal Palm Beach. There are currently about 325 acres of park land as well as a 6,300-square-foot cultural center. Royal Palm Beach has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation, and the entire area within village limits is a designated passive bird sanctuary. The village also offers a variety of activities for the outdoor and sports enthusiast; soccer, basketball, tennis, youth football, senior activities and golf happen year round. 

In the years since the first residents moved into Royal Palm Beach, the surrounding areas have exploded with commercial and residential development. With a seemingly-endless array of shopping and dining possibilities a mere five-minute drive away in Wellington, West Palm Beach or Palm Beach Gardens, a Royal Palm Beach resident is never far from shops, culture, dining or entertainment options. And, of course, the Atlantic Ocean and its beaches are less than a half-hour away.
