Free Parking Details
Feb 2021
We went here for the first time yesterday 2/21/2021. After reading other reviews I had expected to have to pay 5$/hour for parking. That is not necessarily the case. There are a lot of spaces in the South parking lot that are free for 2 hours. This lasts October 1st to May 31st. I believe this was for the benefit of the tennis club. Be careful where you park because the free spots all have a sign in front of them informing you of such. There are a lot of other spot where you are supposed to pay $5/hour, minimum 2 hours. Some of these will appear to have no signage but you are expected to pay for those.

When we visited it was a very windy afternoon about 4 pm and there was lots of parking. Note that you want to be on the south side of the park and the south side of the tennis courts for the free parking. I enjoyed the park in that it was somewhat remote, not crowded and had cooking facilities. I would not have enjoyed paying $5/hour when most beaches are free near Jupiter where I live.

I also understand they ticket quickly if you run over 2 hours. I guess you can move your car to another 2 hour spot. No guarantees on that.

Beach visit

Parking is free (2 hr maximum). It was late in the day and we wanted to just see the beach. Lots of spaces (also was Dec and cool weather). Beach was beautiful!

Overpriced, Under-Maintained

For $5.00 an hour, I would have expected a bathroom I could use on the premises. It was so dark and filthy, and suffocatingly hot, that I could not bring myself to even use it to change I to my swimsuit. No ventilation whatsoever. They should do better!

Great beach without the crowds
Apr 2019 • Friends
This beach is just a mile or so north of the Lake Worth Beach. Parkiing may be free for 2 hr and then you move the car to another 2 hr spot. Bathrooms but no restaurants. Quiet and not crowded when we were there

This park was recommended by a neighbor who goes here to do yoga and stretch with the sunrise. Sits on the ocean ( Twp park). lake Worth is crounded so this is a great change.

Beautiful Beach
Apr 2018 • Friends
Very wide beach with plenty of room to spread out your beach blanket. There are lifeguards, notices about ocean conditions, and public restrooms. They also have grills and outdoor showers to rinse the sand off your feet before you leave. You have to pay for parking.

There's public tennis courts and a beach with ample parking.

There's a parking charge. There's a restroom next to the parking lot. The beach is a very short walk away from the parking lot.

There's picnic tables. A very short walk is an historic building, "The Little Red Schoolhouse". It's worth looking at.

Beautiful Public Beach

Stopped by the park the other day. The beach and water are very nice. Good place for families and for just taking a walk by yourself.

Nice beach
Nov 2017 • Couples
This beach wasn’t very crowded and there was ample parking but it was expensive ($5 an hour). There’s a big drop off right off the shore so it doesn’t stay very shallow long. There is also a hill to walk up to get to the beach, but it’s nicely paved. Otherwise, it was a good visit. There are restrooms and grills and the walk to the beach is pretty.
