1. Jupiter Dog Beach - Beach marker #25 - #59

Jupiter's dog-friendly beach areas have been defined as a 2.5 mile stretch of beach from beach marker #25 at Marcinski Road going north to beach marker #59 on the south end of Carlin Park. This is a popular off-leash dog beach so make sure to keep an eye on your furry friend, bring plenty of fresh water and shade!

2. F.I.N.D. Park - 211 River Park Drive, Jupiter, FL 33477

Great off-leash dog park with separate fenced areas for large and small breeds. There is an additional area with direct access to the intracoastal for those whose dogs like to swim. Or whose dog is like mine and is afraid of the water so he just barks from the beach. There's something for every kind of dog.

3. Jupiter Outdoor Center - 9060 W. Indiantown Road, Jupiter, FL
