Burt Reynolds Park: Assistance Coming for Boaters
August 29, 2016 | Richard Sites
Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter is one of the busiest for boaters in the county. Take a look at the action in this video.
Burt Reynolds Park West boat ramp will be closing after Labor Day. A $1 million construction project is scheduled to begin work after the holiday, when most of the busy summer boating season is behind us.
The West side does not have a fixed bridge so larger boats launch on this side and the smaller ones on the East side. The improvement project will provide more parking spaces for larger boat trailers. The project is expected to be completed by summer of 2017.
The county’s newest boater friendly park, Waterway County Park, on the southwest corner of the Intracoastal Waterway and Indiantown Road near Jonathan’s Landing, is undergoing a $5 million construction job that will include more boat ramps also. The plan calls for three additional boat ramps, a fishing pier, a launch basin, a viewing area and restrooms. Additionally, the new park will have 52 boat trailer parking spots and 20 vehicle parking spaces on the 30-acre site.
Until the projects are completed boaters can use public ramps located at Juno Park and Bert Winters Park which is about half way between our two inlets.
