wetlands resource. The preserve was historically the

headwaters of the Everglades system. It is the City of

West Palm Beach’s Water Catchment Area.

Department, GWP provides fresh drinking water to more

than 130,000 people in West Palm Beach, the Town of

Palm Beach and the Town of South Palm Beach. The preserve

includes nature center pavilions, meandering boardwalk

trails, hiking, biking, canoeing, programs and more!

language, located to the southeast of GWP, is a natural water

reclamation area that will provide an average of six to 10

million gallons of water per day.
