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 reservations and rentals are available only to the City of Boca Raton and the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District Residents.
All organizations requesting use of meeting rooms at Sugar Sand Park Community Center must complete and submit a Room Reservation Application. Accompanying the application:
- Non-Profit Organizations are required to submit a current membership roster (consisting of names, addresses and phone numbers) and proof of their non-profit designation. 66% of the members must be residents of the City of Boca Raton or the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District.
The Room Reservation Application and subsequent documents must be completed in their entirety. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Filling out an application does not guarantee space in the Community Center. Room Reservation Applications will be reviewed for compliance with department rules, regulations, fees and policies prior to approval of application.
Priority is given, on a space-available basis, to those activities that compliment the primary objective (as stated above) of Sugar Sand Park Community Center. Other criteria include public interest and non-duplication of similar meetings within the City.
- Homeowner Associations requesting meeting space must be located within the limits of the City of Boca Raton and/or The Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District. The HOA must provide the contact information, including name, phone number and address, of two current Board Members. Management Company representatives cannot act as an HOA representative and/or sign any documents.
- Non-Profit Organizations requesting meeting space must have a minimum of 66% membership residing within the limits of the City of Boca Raton and The Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District.
