DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Country music superstar Kenny Chesney's No Shoes Reefs organization is helping to have an artificial reef installed off of Florida's Atlantic Coast.

The organization and other marine groups donated and installed 13 reef balls on the ocean floor off of Delray Beach in Palm Beach County.
The last #reefball has been deployed in the new No Shoes Reefs 4 Reef in the Delray Dredge Underwater Park. This is part of the @palmbeachcnty Reefs system, located 1mile off Delray Beach.

Each of the 7-foot-by-6-foot reef balls were dropped earlier this month in the Delray Dredge Hole. The reef is located about a half-mile off the coast of Delray Beach.
It will make up a 32-acre underwater reef park known as No Shoes Reef 4. The reef will provide educational opportunities for students.
