Cinquez Park, located at 2183 West Indiantown Road in Jupiter, is a new dog park which has joined other dog friendly “off leash” fun spots in addition to the beach. Under the direction of their owners, a dog park is a safe place for dogs to exercise and play off-leash in a secure environment. Most canine parks characteristically offer a 6' fence, separate gated entries for large and small breeds, water, shade for hot days and benches for humans. The dog park should have regular maintenance and sanitizing of the grounds.
Cities are opening dog parks because the demand continues to increase. The number of dog parks have increased 20% over the past five years. Wandering freely is positive for dogs. Studies show that leads can cause dogs to become territorial. Off-leash dog areas provide a setting where people and their dogs can gather and play. Dog parks offer dogs a space for play and companionship with other dogs.
Cinquez Park is located immediately north of the intersection on Indiantown Road and Center Street. In 2008, the Town of Jupiter acquired the land for Cinquez Park as part of its “open space” program. The park’s development has been split into two phases.
Phase I just opened and is an open space park which includes parking, lighting, a small restroom/storage building, sidewalks, gazeboes, a lake, and a dog park. Click here to see the Phase I Site Plan.
