The Pioneer Park Aquatic Center in Belle Glade
Also known as “Muck City” (because of the nutrient rich, mucky soil that surrounds it) Belle Glade is a small city in Palm Beach County, located on the shores of Lake Okeechobee. Roughly half the sugarcane in the nation is produced in the mucky fields surrounding Belle Glade, and their high school football team is widely respected as one of the best in the nation (Glades Central High School has more football players in the NFL than any other city in Florida). While historically there hasn’t been that much to do in town (other than play football, apparently), recently a wide variety of activities available to the fun-seeker in the Belle Glade area have come about. The Belle Glade Marina and Campground offers a wide variety of bass-catching opportunities, and is within walking distance of an 18-hole public golf course (as is most of Florida). The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail provides a very nice look at the 4th largest lake entirely within the United States.
