Take A Jaunt Through Mizner Park

Mizner Park is the perfect gathering point for all downtown Boca activities. Whether it be a fine dinner before a riveting night out, a place to start or end your jog, or just a place to sip a coffee and enjoy the sights, there's a reason Mizner Park is named for our most stylish and historic residents.

The Amphitheatre, named for famed donors the Count and Countess deHoernle, is the ultimate multiuse space, where seasonal festivals, special events, and evening concerts take place.
