A new water park is being designed for Sugar Sands Park, which will be all fenced in, only one way in and one way out. Benches and tables are being discussed and officials have visited other water parks including an interactive fountain at Dreher Park in West Palm Beach and a splash park at John Prince Park in Lake Worth. Construction may begin in about a year and a half. Many offerings for family enjoyment at Sugar Sand Park include Sunday morning sports leagues for the kids, a carousel, nature trails with brochures for self-guided tours, a community center featuring Sunday movies for kids, and courses for adults including an Actors Workship, classic movies, and “Having Fun Writing Children’s Books. For ages 7-15, Cartooning, Drawing and Coloring, a Children’s Performance Workshop for ages 6-15 and Gymboree Art for ages 18 months to 5 years. There is a science playground, a science explorium with special programs, and a 155-seat Community Theatre with a variety of shows, concerts, lectures and other productions. You can see a production or attend an activity, then walk the nature trails, sit and watch a sports league game, attend a class… spend a wonderful morning and/or afternoon at Sugar Sands park and bring along a picnic lunch, off Military Trail below Palmetto Park Road just west of I-95, with interesting things to do.
