Room Booking Information


The primary objective for Sugar Sand Park Community Center is to promote and support the Willow Theatre and the Children’s Science Explorium. This will include the scheduling of traveling science exhibits, science programs, special events and theatre productions. As a result, regular meeting space may not be available. Room availability is better suited to accommodate annual and occasional meetings.


Room Application Procedures

All organizations requesting use of meeting rooms at Sugar Sand Park Community Center must complete and submit a Room Application. Filling out an application does not ensure space in the community center.

  • Homeowner Associations are required to submit requests in writing on H.O.A. letterhead, in addition to the application. 
  • Non-Profit Organizations will be responsible for submitting, along with the application, a current membership roster (consisting of names addresses and phone numbers) and a 501(c)(3) or 501(c) (4) Tax Certificate.

The Room Application must be completed in its entirety and submitted with the above-mentioned paperwork. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Room Applications will be reviewed by the appropriate staff for compliance with department rules, regulations, fees and policies prior to approval of application.


Room Application Requirements

  • Non-Profit Organizations requesting meeting space must be a not-for-profit civic group that has a minimum of 66% membership residing within the limits of the City of Boca Raton and The Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District. Not-for-profit organizations with higher percentages of residents are given priority.
