The Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District developed and operates this 132-acre park, which continues the district’s commitment to enhancing the role of leisure and culture for residents and visitors alike.
Sugar Sand Park is a municipal park situated in Boca Raton, Florida. It was developed by the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District. It is administered by the City of Boca Raton. It has earned numerous accolades for excellence, such as “Best of the Best Parks” in 2007.
The Children’s Science Explorium, the Willow Theatre, and the Field House, which has an indoor gymnasium, are all located in Sugar Sand Park.
