1. Sugar Sand Park

This is a beautiful newly renovated park. It still has the same structures but newer. How about that carousel? Great for all ages and awesome Instagram pics too! They have slides, a multi-tiered climbing structure, a spray mister, swings. You should try the climbing structure. It’s wide enough for adults to fit in and chase after their kids easily.

The playground also has access for children with disabilities. They have the Willow Theater that hosts films and live theater productions throughout the year. They also have a water spray area and if you ever get too hot while playing outside, take a chance to visit the Children’s Science Explorium. There are lots of stuff to see such as traveling exhibits. Many of the sports leagues utilize the fields and the basketball courts at Sugar Sand Park in East Boca in between Camino and Palmetto Park Road on Military Trail.

2. Patch Reef Park

Patch Reef is a very large park and back when our kids were younger we went to many birthday parties and of course Boca Jets Football! This big park has beautiful, well-kept landscape. There are lots mature trees that provide shade and give you a cool feeling. They have ball fields, pavilions, and playgrounds.  Let your kids enjoy running around, a splash pad, swings and Pirates Cove Playground! There are outdoor restrooms and pavilions that you can rent for your own parties, picnics and gatherings. The park has a tennis center, a community center, very long biking and walking trail. There is also plenty of parking space. A park you’ll surely revisit!
