Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department operates three amphitheaters that regularly host concerts: Sunset Cove west of Boca Raton, Canyon west of Boynton Beach and Seabreeze in Jupiter.

Families and friends can kick back on a blanket and relax while watching a show under the stars. Find scheduling here.


Okeeheelee, Daggerwing and Green Cay nature centers, as well as Riverbend Park, regularly host nature-themed events for all ages. Examples include guided paddles, birding tours, tai chi classes, full-moon bike rides and animal feedings.


Head to one of six pools and aquatic centers to practice lap swims, water aerobics and other water-related activities. Monthly calendars are posted on the facility’s website.


Visit one of the county's five golf courses, which offer fun-packed calendars of events.

Or try out the Junior Golf Card program, which aims to grow the game of golf.  It significantly discounts prices and offers younger golfers access to free golf, range balls and events.
