Palm Beach Shooting Sports Target Range
What’s going on with the building of the Palm Beach Shooting Sports Target Range? We’re going to find out!
Back in 2017, we learned about the plans for a public shooting range in Palm Beach County to be called Palm Beach County Shooting Sports park. This park was being built by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Palm Beach County.
Since then, it has received backing from the the South Florida Water Management District, the National Rifle Association, and Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
The 150 acre site for the range is located at the north end of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, near the entrance to the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area. According to the FWC, it will feature the following:
6-position 300-yard rifle range
20-position 200-yard rifle range
20-position 100-yard rifle range
42-position 25/50-meter rifle/handgun range
30-position 10-meter/50-foot handgun range
Automated 14-station sporting clays course
Automated 5-stand sporting clays field
9 automated skeet fields
6 automated American trap fields
5 automated International (Olympic) trap fields
But as of this writing, it’s early 2019 and despite lots of building progress, the range is still not open. We’ll be following the progress closely and posting updates and photos here.
