Deerfield Island is a fifty-six acre nature-oriented park that offers passive outdoor recreational opportunities and environmental education for everyone. Accessible only by boat, this park is bordered by the Intracoastal Waterway and the Hillsboro and Royal Palm canals.  Remnants of a freshwater wetland are evident, although red and white mangroves are now dominant. 

This park is a Designated Urban Wilderness Area and the island provides habitat for raccoons, squirrels, and gopher turtles, as well as migratory and indigenous birds.

 

A free boat shuttle transports park patrons from the Sullivan Park dock to the island on the hour from 10:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. on weekends only.  The last shuttle returning to the mainland departs the island at 4:30pm.

There is a marina with six slips for boats no longer than 25 feet and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
