Jupiter Community Park Improvements
In order to meet the current and future needs of our youth and adult recreation leagues and activities, the Town of Jupiter is proposing a Master Plan for renovations to Jupiter Community Park (JCP).
Public Input Meeting - October 26, 2017 | 6:00 pm | Jupiter Community Center
A public input meeting has been scheduled to present the proposed Jupiter Community Park Master Plan and provide an opportunity to review the plan components and discuss its details. The meeting will take place on Thursday, October 26 at 6:00 pm in rooms A and B of the Jupiter Community Center. There will be an opportunity at the public meeting to provide feedback on the Master Plan.

Jupiter Community Park Background
In the early 1990s, the Town recognized the need for multipurpose field space as well as additional park amenities based on the forecasted population growth within the Town of Jupiter. The first phase of Jupiter Community Park was built in 1991 with funds the Town acquired from the sale of 10 acres of land at the existing Maplewood Park. This phase of development of the 94 acres of park land included multipurpose fields and a softball quad; big league and little league baseball fields, basketball and tennis courts were added the following year.
Since that time and based on the growth and needs of our youth sports provider, Jupiter Tequesta Athletic Association (JTAA), sand volleyball courts have been added along with three additional multi-purpose fields. Minor maintenance projects have been completed throughout the years on an as-needed basis, but several of the park's original amenities remain after 26 years.
The proposed timeline for the currently funded JCP improvements begins in 2019, and is tentatively scheduled to conclude in 2023. As with any project of this type and magnitude, the schedule is subject to things like weather and funding availability. Only elements that have been funded are included in the proposed timeline. As funding sources are identified, additional components of the proposed Master Plan will be added to the timeline, which may change the projected outlook.
