The Jupiter River Center is a fun destination for locals or tourists.The River Center offers its guests amazing facilities with live aquatic tanks, interactive exhibits, and a touch tank that represents the ecosystem of the Loxahatchee River, from freshwater cypress swamps to sea grass estuaries to marine bionetworks.

Every Saturday from 2pm-3pm the Jupiter River Center staff hosts a tour through the facility with an interactive and unique touch tank exhibit, as well as to view a live feeding of the resident animals.
