Red Reef Park has great access to the beach with plenty of picnic areas. The only problem that arrises is that parking can be tight on busiy weekends or holidays.

Nice beach for families. When the waves are calm really good for snorkeling too! Parking costs a little but worth it. You can park across the street for a little less.

Boca Raton charges money to get to the beach in all but one case. This one is a nice park with plenty of beach frontage and picnic tables, but the fees could be hefty. Check it out before going.

This was an unexpected break. There were few people, the weather was pleasant, and the water was clearer than most beaches. Parking was an affordable $2.00 per hour across the street, and for a walk two hours is plenty of time.

Looking for a snorkeling spot close to shore, we learned of Red Reef which was 25 minutes away. The only snorkeling spot left in the park was connected to the beach and there were no pretty fish near it, plus the visibility was bad due...More

The Red Reef Park is a wonderful place to visit with any age. From young kids exploring the fish on the reef, to teens relaxing on the sand. Red Reef Park is a park for anyone.

Sorry would not know answer to that. Try contacting the town hall. Assume the town owns it. If not they can tell you if state does and who to call

The best Place to park is across the street from Red Reef. All day parking at red reef is around $17. But you can park across the street and pay hourly if you don't plan to stay all day it's much cheaper
