    My wife and I are always looking for new places to walk and decided to give Rutherford Park a try. To be fair, we did not go to picnic or barbecue so I cannot comment on the quality of those services....  more »

    Nice Park, where everyone wears on their liking for yourself: you can relax in the shady pavilions or exercise.

    Very nice park. This park has boardwalk trails that lead to the traditional lakefront areas and a hidden boardwalk that has fallen apart and is now a very interesting and raw obstacle course.

    I am actually conflicted writing this review. This park has the potential to be awesome, it's sad to see it in its present condition. However, the city has let the waterfront and boardwalk section decline to the point it looks like something out of a horror movie. Sections are completely closed off do to unsafe conditions and missing sections of railings. The kayak launch is no-longer open either. The part that is open is sketchy at best. I have no idea what these other reviewers are talking about, perhaps they are confusing it with the other park "lake wyman" that rutherford butts up too or have alternative motives for posting 5 star review but there is no way that this park is a 5 star park at the current time. The city really needs to step up to the plate and get the ball rolling to improve this park. Perhaps the city should stop concentrating on building highrise hotels and condos for a minute and focus on the things that made Boca such a great place to live in the first place. Or at least use some of that newfound tax revenue from these hotels/apts. they are allowing to be slapped up on any available piece of land in the city. City council should be ashamed of letting such a great place decline to this point. It's time to fix this little hidden gem of Boca.

    Great park in a quiet location. Brand new play ground, rest rooms and picnic areas with grills. Parking is free.

    Cool local place that never knew existed. Quiet, random, go here

Where to stay in Boca Raton

Resorts and oceanside hotels with peach and pink stucco architecture populate Boca Raton's coastline. Farther inland from the beaches, there's a wide selection of affordable lodging in chain hotels and rental properties. For a longer stay, consider renting a furnished apartment from a private owner near the city's downtown. Those looking for a stress-free vacation could try an all-inclusive vacation package at one of the seaside resorts.
