Lake Clarke Shores is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. The population was 3,451 at the 2000 census. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 3,475.

Lake Clarke Shores developed from a community of a few homes on the shores of Lake Clarke. The improvement of Selby Road and connection to Forest Hill Boulevard eastward from Florida Mango Road (Selby Road was later renamed as the western portion of Forest Hill Boulevard) via a bridge over the West Palm Beach Canal in the 1950s encouraged large scale development. The off-center connection of Selby Road to Forest Hill Boulevard explains the sweeping curve of Forest Hill Boulevard through the town. Large scale development also required dredging of canals and bulkheading nearly the entire shore of Lake Clarke. Development had occurred at such rate that by 1957 the community incorporated as a town. The original town hall and police station was located at southeast corner of Pine Tree Lane and Forest Hill Boulevard before being relocated to the present Barbados Road location in the late 1970s. The 1970s and 1980s saw additional, non-residential development occur in the town along Forest Hill Boulevard, as well as street lighting and signage improvements on the town’s residential streets. Many interesting examples of “retro” 1950s and 1960s architecture can be found on some homes, particularly close to Forest Hill Boulevard. Other stately homes are located directly on the lake.
