Posted on: February 5, 2024 | Read Time: 4 minutes

With four championship golf courses, three exception clubhouses, and more than 600 annual events, people might wonder if there is anything more Boca West could provide its Members. Yet, they’ve done it again. This private club community in Boca Raton has just fully overhauled its sports and fitness center to create a sprawling new amenity campus – all without any Member assessments. The grand facilities have been renamed as the Lifestyle & Racquet Center with a focus on the community’s “Live Well” lifestyle. The dramatic transformation was designed by renowned architecture firm Garcia Stromberg and land planner EDSA, Inc. with construction by T&G Constructors. Let’s take a closer look at the Boca West Lifestyle & Racquet Center and the new amenities this state-of-the-art facility provides.

Aquatics Center with Five Pools

Designed and built by Weller Pools and Martin Aquatic Design, the new 96,000-square-foot Aquatics Center is an unmatched retreat for all ages. Five pools are spread throughout the area, including a four-lane lap pool, a zero-entry family pool, an adult pool with submerged lounges, a lower-level jacuzzi, and a kids’ pool with a splash pad. Each pool will be surrounded by tropical landscaping and plentiful lounge chairs and umbrellas for relaxing and enjoying the Florida sunshine.

The totally redesigned Aquatics Center boasts a fresh arrival building housing a cabana retail shop, a first aid center, and restrooms. Additionally, a new Pool House will offer showers, changing rooms, and 100 day use lockers, supplementing the existing 400 Fitness Center lockers and 160 Spa Lockers. This enhanced space also introduces a new Multi-Purpose Room adjacent to the kids’ pool area and splash zone. This space will be used as a recreation room with games and kids activities throughout the year. A multipurpose event space and two activity lawns will host a wide spectrum of social events for all ages.

The Lifestyle & Racquet Center also adds four exciting new restaurants to Boca West’s renowned culinary scene. This brings the total number of on-site dining venues to a perfect ten, including eight dedicated venues (restaurants, bars, and lounges), a pop-up-themed food trailer, and a grab-and-go market, that rivals the nation’s top restaurants.
