We where in Boca Raton and had way to many kids as we where a large group of friends that day. We took the kids to Sugar Sand Park for the afternoon to "wear them out". One of the playgrounds was under renovation. We loved the Carousel. Park is beautiful and very well maintained. We played all sorts of sports... More

This is a wonderful park! There is a great science center and outdoor play area. Really worth the trip. I live in Palm Beach Gardens and still drive to Boca for this park. Wonderful!

I enjoy taking my son here. The only bad thing right now is that it's currently closed, due to a good cause they are renovating. Has a little museum for the kids to play with next door, a carousel and the little water splash area. I JUST LOVE IT HERE. Please be fall already so the park could be done... More

Good morning Nina, Thank you for your review! Our playground may be closed for construction until the fall, but the rest of our amazing park is open. Come back soon to visit our Community Center, Children's Science Explorium, and our Willow Theatre! More

This is a great place to take young children. Very easy to relax and let little ones play. Very interactive. Great variety of activities. This underwent a renovation this winter and we were very disappointed to miss it.

Fabulous place for kids to run amuck, explore, and climb. Great to go with friends. Shaded seating for parents while kids burn off energy. It is hard to track them while they play so I recommend the buddy system, but there is only 1 exit from the playground. Park also has baseball fields...

Huge 3 level fort playground with water cannons, carousel horses and dinosaur archeological sand box. Add all this with a children science museum and you can keep any child busy for the day ..

While it seems so small, there is no much to see. It's very kid oriented which is nice for families!

Great place, especially for kids, but too overcrowded. I go all the time with my cousins, but every single time, it is too crowded, and we have been there on school days. Being overcrowded is a good sign for being really good, and a great place for kids!
