Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter to Close for 7 Months

Posted by Brittany Bosher on Monday, May 2nd, 2016 at 1:07pm.


Beginning June 1, the popular Burt Reynolds Park West in Jupiter will be closing for construction for about 7 months. The $1.7 million restoration will add parking spaces, lighted underpasses, restrooms and more. 

The original boat ramps at Burt Reynolds Park West were built in 1980 and will now be completely revamped and replaced beginning in the summer. The plans to modify the park are definitely going to be a big win for boaters and those who like to launch their boats, jetskis, kayaks and other water sporting goods here at Burt Reynolds Park West. 

DETAILS OF THE NEW PLANS 

The plans for the new park call for adding two-dozen parking spaces large enough to fit a vehicle and boat trailer and to reduce the number of spaces for vehicles without trailers. So, the total number of spaces for vehicles with trailers will increase to 71 total spaces and the total number of spaces for vehicles without trailers will decrease from 26 to 10 spaces. There will also be a new public restroom and a lighted underpass for pedestrians to walk safely underneath the busy road of U.S. 1 to get from the west and east sides of the park. 

As for now, there have been no plans made to change the boat ramps in Burt Reynolds Park.
