About this range:

This public shooting facility is being built by the FWC in partnership with Palm Beach County.  It will feature rifle and handgun ranges, sporting clays, 5-stand, skeet, and American and Olympic trap. Phase I of the project (rifle and handgun ranges) is supported through funding from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program (WSFR). Additional support and funding are provided by Palm Beach County, the National Rifle Association, and the Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida. This center is being created to offer target shooting enthusiasts a place to gain skills and knowledge for safe, responsible firearms handling and target shooting.

The following is a tentative completion schedule for various phases of the facility. Phase descriptions are located on the Palm Beach County Shooting Park Conceptual PlanAdobe PDF.
