Welcome to Wildflower Park

To be a great Realtor is more than the art of buying and selling properties. It means to be the key to the city that all newcomers can rely upon, to stay current, updated, and on top of our game. For that reason, we pride ourselves on dialing into local affairs and presenting you with the latest and most pertinent information emerging from around the city. We watched with curiosity as the plans for the brand-new Wildflower Park broke ground earlier this year. The small waterfront park sits on the northwest corner of the drawbridge on Palmetto Park Rd. directly adjacent to the Trattoria Romana restaurant. Read on to learn more about the ins and outs of this delightful addition to our Boca Raton Parks, and why you should pay a visit to Wildflower Park!

What is Wildflower Park

Wildflower Park is a multimillion-dollar project designed to give Boca Raton residents a beautiful slice of serenity directly on the Intracoastal waterfront. The ceremonial ribbon cutting took place on October 22nd and since then the park has begun to attract passersby and dedicated visitors alike. Much like the drawbridge before it, Wildflower Park is within walking distance of many Boca Raton condos and Highland Beach homes to the northeast. This "passive park" is located on a 2.3-acre site of city land bought in 2009, making it part of Boca Raton's waterfront master plan, which created the framework for the recreational and sustainable use of city-owned waterfront property. Construction begins in January of 2021 with the crucial infrastructure installed first - including a reinforced seawall and underground utilities. Wildflower Park got it's named and purpose after much public input, where citizens expressed the desire for a park such as this. The park is named for the former Wildflower Restaurant which used to reside on the site, which has been known for years as the 'wildflower property."

Features at Wildflower Park

As a "passive" park near the water, the park is built for relaxation. As an urban green space, this is the perfect place to decompress for the thousands of nearby residents in the walking range of this beautiful park. Beyond the upgraded infrastructure to sustain the added foot traffic, there will be:

  • Waterfront seating
  • Picnic tables and dining areas
  • Pedestrian promenade
  • Pavilions and public restrooms
  • Event lawn
  • interactive water features and play art

Upcoming events include a month-long sand art exhibit beginning on November 1st, and a December 16th viewing of Palm Beach Plein Air artists will be available to visitors as they paint views from this lovely new park. On January 7th, take advantage of the delightful event lawn for a free tai chi class at 9 AM, and on February 3rd stop by with your appetite in tow for Food Truck Friday!
