Recreation Needs Assessment

The City of Boca Raton's Recreation Services Department launched a campaign, Boca ReCreate, to determine needs and priorities for the future of Boca Raton's parks, trails, beaches, libraries, recreation facilities, athletic fields, programs and services. It is funded by the City and the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District and includes processes such as a demographic and trend analysis, staffing and maintenance reviews and a community needs assessment survey.

The City and Beach and Park District encourage all residents of the City and the District to continue to provide ideas, suggestions and comments at the bottom of the Boca ReCreate website under "Your Comments".
