This park as everything...its has a bmx track that i got a lot bruises trying to complete the course..camping which i did with some friend(wasn't fully prepared) boating/fishing was fun.i guess because we kept pushing each other in the water all the time...i had a lot of fun at okeeheelee park but it was really hot most of the time...otherwise you cant run out of activities to do

I love this park; BMX track, dog park, water skiing, golf, kayaking. So many things to do. I am waiting for an event at the equestrian arena so I can take my children. The equestrian (south park) is incredible. We bring our dogs and our kids and have a great time.

Okeeheelee Park is a well-used park because it has a lot to offer people of all ages. You can ride bikes, play golf, play tennis, fish, baseball fields, soccer, BMX track, work-out trail & kayak & paddle boat rentals. There's even a nature center. A Sheriffs office Mounted Unit is in the back. There's a dog park on the top of the hill. I've heard from neighbors that quite a few dog fights occur there though.
If you have your own boat and can ski a slalom course then that's there as well. You MUST have a permit for it!
Women & girls!!! Be careful here when your alone. I was involved in an incident a few years back and now I don't go out there alone unless my Rottie is with me.

This is a very large park with 2 large play areas, multiple gazebos with grills to picnic, a very large walk path, a free golf range with some miniature golf holes and a massive open field in the middle to play soccer, football, frisbee etc. something for everyone. Largest park in Palm Beach County.
