Beautiful lagoon off Jupiter inlet with calm water --perfect for young children . There is plenty of free parking with grills to cook and a Carribean type atmosphere

There are two key entrances and both lead down the same paths of enjoyment. The fishing jetty and the beach are pleasant and always nice to walk. Have fun and picnic on the beach or just take a walk and enjoy the sun, water and beach.

I spent hours here with my baby and mom. Child friendly and a lot of fun for everyone; especially children.

We had the best day at the beach. The sand was wonderful, little waves and lots of shells. We were able to walk in a long way and it was not deep. They are redoing part of the beach. So next year it will even be better.

It's always tough finding a good beach for kids in South Florida, the land of the unsightly high rises hogging up all of the coastal land.

This beach has a wonderful, shallow lagoon area for kids where even the smallest toddlers can go wading. It is protected by a rock wall, protecting it from the boat traffic going by on the intracoastal and has a lifeguard on duty the majority of the time. There are picnic tables and charcoal grills available (very crowded on weekends) and you can easily make a low-cost day out of it. It was better before the extensive renovation, but it's still nice. The view of the lighthouse is gorgeous, especially around sunset.

Within easy walking distance (as in 100 yards) is the inlet, with fishing and parking available. It is fun to watch the boats come in and out. There are also several restaurants within very easy driving distance.

The entire park reminds me of how Florida used to be before many of the beach areas became inaccessible to the average person.

I love the Jupiter area, and this park is one of its gems.
