Community leaders and citizens of the Town of Jupiter recognized a need for a park facility with amenities that would offer alternative athletic activities for sports that continue to become more and more mainstream. As a result, Abacoa Community Park (previously known as South Jupiter Community Park) was opened in November 2003. The park consists of a 12 acre facility which includes a large concrete Skate Park, two roller hockey rinks and a number of other sports facilities. Input from community members and future users of the park allowed the Town to construct a park with their priorities in mind.
The Skate Park offers areas for beginners through advanced skaters and bikers. The 9’ deep concrete bowl is a highlighted feature of the park for more advanced skaters. Several wood ramps and box jumps within the advanced section of the Skate Park were constructed with the ability to eventually reconstruct the area and essentially create a new “flow” to the park. The roller hockey rinks are the only ones of its type within the Town of Jupiter and are a very popular addition to the area. The rinks are primarily used by youth hockey leagues through the Jupiter-Tequesta Athletic Association as well as for open skating.
