Science Playground


PLEASE NOTEConstruction on the new Sugar Sand Park Science Playground is scheduled for completion in spring of 2017. The Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District is working diligently with the contractor to expedite the project and ensure that the playground will exceed expectations of safety and inclusiveness for the community. For further information please contact the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District office at 561-417-4599.

The separate Tot Lot (by the baseball fields), the Children's Science Explorium and the Carousel are unaffected and ARE STILL OPEN.

Visit for updates on the NEW FULLY ACCESSIBLE, all abilities playground coming soon.



The Science Playground is a tri–level hands–on experience that features many interactive components demonstrating a variety of scientific principles for all ages. 

It also features a limited water area where no one gets utterly soaked (unless they really want to). A water trough and water jets will keep those who want to splash busy, while others can still enjoy the rest of the playground.

The playground is located outdoors adjacent to Sugar Sand Park Community Center/Children's Science Explorium.

Monday–Sunday:  8 am – sunset


Note: water is not available when the temperature is below 72°. Playground will close at first sign of inclement weather.

Advance reservations and residency requirements are necessary for group visits.
