Florida is known for its sunshine and long sandy beaches, but sometimes you could use a little shade. The perfect shade/sun equilibrium is best enjoyed at one of the many parks in the Palm Beach/West Palm Beach area. The following list is a mixture of the parks with walking trails and playscapes as well as the top environmental parks with nature centers in the area. Most of the parks on this list have a community calendar and regularly schedule family events that are both fun and educational.
The facilities at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton allow guests to learn and explore. The giant playscape is great for creative games that release energy and are a great follow up to viewing the exhibits in the Children’s Science Explorium. The beautiful carousel is great for photo opportunities.
Another beautiful park is the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park situated along the Atlantic Ocean. This park and nature center has taken special preservation measures to keep the natural fauna and wildlife robust. With fishing opportunities and winding trails, this park is a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With this many well-kept parks in the county, the hardest decision will be deciding which one to go to first.
