Went here with my almost 5 year old and 7.5 year old girls. We stayed for an hour or so, but could've stayed much longer. The playground is so much fun and is so big, they never tired of it. Plus there are slides and swings. The carousel is a bargain at $1. It was in the 60s when we... More

Besides all the TLC with our grandchildren this was the park and activity they asked for every day..the activities are amazing and the only charge was $1 for the carousel . The photos taken on that were priceless. Older kids also have a lot of things to do and the parking lot was quiet full by noon in the middle... More

This is a great city park that is probably the best park I have ever been to for young children. We brought our one year old grandchild and we all had a great time. From the science center, original art, a beautiful carousel, a fun multi level play fort, a nice walking nature trail, a hockey rink. This park is... More

My grandchildren have played sports at Sugar Sand for years! It is perfectly maintained and always convenient for several sports. It is a busy place but parking is available. There is also a wonderful merry-go-round, science exhibits and play area. We actually used the park for a birthday party a few years ago - perfect!

We brought our grandkid, nephew and niece and we had a blast. The 3D maze and the water feature were great. The kids were supposed to play with the water cannons but us adults took over and started squirting everybody within sight. The kids loved it though. Other great feature is the awesome antique looking carousel. For just a few... More

I like Sugar Sand, my grand daughter likes it more. There are fun kid activities but I appreciate the closeness of the facilities, the cut outs on the walls so we can discuss ancient animals and lots and lots of places to sit in the shade.

For your own children, grandchildren, and friends, this is one of the best parks anywhere. It has everything and almost everything is free including parking. We in boca Raton are very proud of this beautiful, safe, and clean park.

there was a fun little gem just off a main road in Boca Raton. The kids' playground has such an array of things to do in a safe environment. The carousel was an unexpected treat and, at a dollar per ride, a real bargain. The nature trails are pretty basic but OK. There are playing fields and a science emporium,... More

Wonderful place for families. Lots of activities for children including carousel and theatre and baseball fields and playground. They also have special events scheduled. Only problem is that there are really no walking or jogging trails - yes there is a nature trails but it is very limited.
