Spanish River Park#5 in Best Things To Do in Boca Raton
Spanish River Park, also known as "Boca Raton's Lagoon," is named for a stream that once flowed along the western side of the park. The river is now considered to part of the Intracoastal Waterway. Although you can't swim in the lagoon or waterway, there is access to the Atlantic beach and lifeguards are on duty during the day. The park also offers several nature trails and a picnic area with grills, tables and restrooms. Fishing is also permitted with a license.
Recent visitors loved the picnic areas, playground, scenic nature trails and the clean beach, accessible by a tunnel under Highway A1A. Many reviewers commented on the lack of crowds and unspoiled natural beauty.
An easy stop if you're traveling on A1A, the park is open daily from 8 a.m. to sunset. While the park is free to walkers and cyclists, there's a vehicle entry fee of $16 on weekdays and $18 on weekends. To learn more about the park and its amenities, visit the City of Boca Raton website.
