Join us for the rededication of Earl E. T. Smith Park in honor of the Foundation’s 40th anniversary.
Since its dedication in 1989, Earl E.T. Smith Park has been a proud landmark in Palm Beach and a noteworthy illustration of the Preservation Foundation’s community-oriented goals. A beautiful tribute to Smith, a resident of Palm Beach for over 50 years, the park is an integral part of the area’s historic charm as it remains true to the Garden Club’s original plan for a town square dating back to 1929. Located directly west of town hall, the park’s charismatic architecture and lush landscaping provide a peaceful and tranquil escape for residents to truly enjoy.
Earl E.T. Smith was a respected civic and political leader whose government career was distinguished by appointments from four presidents. He served his country and community as U.S. Ambassador to Cuba, Mayor of Palm Beach and as the first Chairman of the Board of the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach. This park honors Smith’s legendary public works, his efforts to better the lives of his fellow citizens and his passion for preserving the beauty of the town he loved – Palm Beach.
