The 132-acre Sugar Sand Park is a family favorite, featuring an array of amenities for both children and adults. Little ones can burn off some energy at the playground, water park, carousel or interactive Children's Science Explorium, while adults enjoy the athletic courts, full gym and nature trails. The entire family will enjoy shows at the Willow Theatre and extensive picnic facilities.
Recent visitors to Sugar Sand Park said it's "phenomenal" for all ages, with some even calling it the best park in Boca Raton. Travelers loved the water park, sand box and carousel for young children and the hands-on science center and shows at the theater for older kids and teens.
