Spanish River Park

95 Acres on the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean in Boca Raton

Spanish River Park is a 95 acre public park on the beach in Boca Raton, FL. Parking, picnic areas and most of the other amenities are located on the west side of A1A. The beach is accessed through three tunnels which pass under A1A so you don’t have to worry about crossing the street. Spanish River Park is one of the few public beaches where dogs are welcome (see below for scheduled dog beach times). In addition, there are 10 pavilions with capacities between 30 and 200 people, almost 1000 parking spaces and over 125 picnic tables. Spanish River Park is the place to go for a beach picnic day in Boca Raton!
