Late last month, a new park opened in Jupiter to offer more launch access to the 40,000 recreational boaters in Palm Beach County. Waterway Park is located on a peninsula running 31 acres along the Intracoastal. Amenities include 3 boat ramps, a launch basin, boardwalk, four floating docks, a fishing pier and a restroom facility.

During construction, volunteers planted 35,000 red mangrove seedlings, creating a 1-acre maritime hammock at the end of the peninsula. There are also 11 acres of marsh-grass wetlands set aside as a tortoise preserve which 60 gopher tortoises have been moved to.

The multipurpose park allows boaters more space to park trailers and launch boats. For those without boats, it’s a place to perhaps launch a kayak, throw the fishing pole, paddleboard, go for a nature walk, or maybe sit on a floating dock and watch the sunset.

The parking lot conveniently has 52 boat trailer spaces and 20 vehicle spaces. Boat trailer parking permits are required which are available on site for $10.
