Jupiter Florida Parks Guide
Introduction to Jupiter, FL Parks
No trip to Jupiter is complete without time spent outdoors among the almost 2,000+ acres of parks and recreation facilities. Our gorgeous sandy beaches beckon natives and visitors alike. In fact, we have almost a dozen different sun-kissed locations here in Jupiter where the sand meets the Atlantic. That’s miles of coastline to surf, swim, fish, paraglide, sunbathe, perfect your sandcastle building skills – or even just daydream while watching the famous Florida clouds and working on your tan. When you’re in Jupiter, every day truly can be “a day at the beach.”
Feel like a hiking adventure? Jupiter’s parks have you covered there too. There are almost 20 different nature preserves, natural areas, and state parks in Jupiter featuring miles of hiking, biking, jogging, and equestrian trails. These nature trails wind through lush wetlands and protected woodlands offering unsurpassed birding and wildlife viewing opportunities. Part of the Northeast Everglades Natural Area, large tracts of land in Jupiter contain native ecosystems, untouched for centuries. To walk among the natural beauty is a humbling experience.
Perhaps you would rather boat? Or kayak? Or canoe? Or even stand up paddleboard? Jupiter is blessed with water. Whether it is the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway, or the Loxahatchee River, Jupiter is sculpted by the flow of water. As you silently paddle down some of the bends, you feel the years receding – the world’s and your own. It is no wonder that Jupiter is quickly becoming the SUP capital of the United States. Of course, a trip down the waterway doesn’t have to be silent. Wakeboarding is hugely popular here in Jupiter’s Intracoastal waters.
If you believe that “the worst day fishing is better than the best day of anything else,” then Jupiter’s parks are your Heaven on Earth offering both fresh and saltwater fishing opportunities. Boat, pier, even on land, the fishing spots are almost as varied as the types of fish to be caught.
Maybe your day in the park is actually a day in the park – playing with the kids (and in some cases, even the dog) on playground equipment, or swimming in the pool, or even doing Ollies at the state-of-the-art skate park. We’ve got you covered. Here in Jupiter you can spend the morning surfing, the afternoon riding horses down a hidden trail, and then go for an evening kayak ride in the light of our historic lighthouse.
Whether you want to surf, to stand up paddleboard, to hike, bike, fish, to explore history, or to simply spend a day in the park with the kids or the dogs, our comprehensive guide to Jupiter’s Parks puts all of that information in one place. Your day of fun in the sun is just a click away.
