Have been coming to Carlin Park for many years. Enjoy the beach; the pavilions are perfect for sitting and reflecting, as well as for big group bar-b-ques, etc. Even our dog loves going to run with us on the grass out front.

Visited this park on our time inJupiter. Very clean, neat and wonderful for enjoying the beach, picnic, ball game, or just hanging out. The beach access is easy and the beach is terrific. The picnic area is varied. There is at least one large picnic pavilion to reserve for a big group. The Civic Center also is on the grounds.... More

Fun for a quick swim or all day at the beach. Bathrooms were clean. Lifeguard was on duty. Lots of parking. Loggerhead Cafe right there. There is a pavilian that you can rent or 2 rows of table with BBQ to use. Bug Spray may be need for little sand bugs.

Walk your dog or just walk ... lots of open space. Clean and well maintained. Jupiter may well have some of the best parks in the country.

The view is my favorite in Jupiter. We walk the dogs there and you can almost always count on a nice cool breeze off the water no matter how warm it is. There are restrooms and places to sit if you just want to take in the wonderful view.

This is a great guarded beach. No dogs on the beach at Carlin Park but you can take them just to the south and enjoy your pet on the beach there. It also has a great place to eat, pavilions, ball field, tennis courts and heart trail.

As a tourist, this place is easy to get to, plenty of free parking, simple access to the beach, plenty of facilities (bathroom, picnic, playgrounds, etc) and Lazy Loggerhead restaurant is located there. Great place to bring visiting family members who want to see the beach. As a local, it is super convenient and even when the crowds have descended... More

Even during the summer, this beach is quiet and serene. It is a short walk to the beach from the parking lot, unlike other beaches, which is a bonus. The sand is soft and white while the water is blue and clear. The waves can be a little rough, causing a drop off in the sand, but the roughest part... More
