Jupiter’s Most Loved Park Becomes Nationally Recognized!

DuBois Park, Jupiter FLJupiter’s famous DuBois Park has been awarded with a National Award that recognizes “excellence in recreation and park facilities for the very best in design.” DuBois Park is a historic icon of Jupiter and has been a popular place for locals and visitors alike to enjoy some fun in the sun! The park is lined with gorgeous palm trees, tropical sea grapes and other lush vegetation. The crystal blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean flow through the park bringing through varieties of small tropical fish and wildlife perfect for those who like to snorkel and explore. Because the rock jetty protects DuBois, the currents aren’t too strong and there are never big waves making the environment ideal for small children to play safely.

DuBois Park has become known for all of its beauty and fun, water activities but it also has a rich history very important to the town of Jupiter. Artifacts that have been preserved signify that the site was occupied from at least 1,000 BC. Harry DuBois, built his home at this location in 1897, giving the park its interesting history of pioneers. Harry DuBois built his home on the Jupiter Inlet Indian Midden and now both the Indian Midden and the DuBois Park on the National Register of Historic Places. DuBois Park has a rich, documented history.

DuBois Park spans 18 acres and connects via a footbridge to a Jupiter Beach Park, a 46-acre oceanfront park.
