“Great place for a party!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Many pavilions for parties or gatherings. Bathrooms, showers and small cafe. Great beach! Park has baseball and a playground and across the street is tennis and fitness trail. The small Jupiter Civic Center is also in the park facing the beach and available for rent. Great for beach weddings!

“Town of Jupiter Strikes Again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

To try and make this park more appealing (commercialized) they had all of the non-native (in their opinion) taken out and in their haste took a FL pine as well. Then they built a huge amphitheater where events are held on a regular basis.
This did not bode well for the birds/animals that lived there in particular, the endangered Scrub Jay.
Carlin Park has a lovely “walking trail” which I have discontinued using in the latter part of the afternoon, evenings as the city has allowed a large group of men to take over a large portion of what used to be a green grassy area to play soccer. Want to enjoy Carlin? Go early morning/afternoon otherwise, avoid.

“ExExcellent management of green spaces for public use.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

At a picnic with many friends was hired a pavilion of Carlin Park. First my experience: positive! Park facilities, with access to the sea, Pavillions well-organized response to all the needs of the community in recreation. Even the green spaces and the shading of parking is acceptable in sunny periods. Reporting and organized collection of rifiuti. Excellent example of management of green spaces for public use.

Amphitheater. Watched Shakespeare's "Much to do about Nothing™. Great venue. Balmy ocean breezes, star filled sky. Park well maintained. Beautiful atmosphere. Well secured.
