Is North Palm Beach a Good Place to Live?
Both Palm Beach County and Martin County as well as local Cities, Towns and Villages have spent millions of dollars to have several beachfront and waterfront parks dedicated to the public making outdoor sport activities and natural areas easily accessible and mostly free to local residents and visitors. This has limited residential and commercial development in these areas. One such park is Loggerhead Park in Juno Beach – home of Loggerhead Marinelife Center which promotes conservation of Florida’s natural coastal ecosystem and mainly known for their recovery and adoption of sea turtles. Many coastal area parks offer free guarded beaches along Ocean Drive or A1A, Intracoastal waterfront ocean access boat ramps such as Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter, public har-tru and hard court tennis courts such as at Jupiter Lighthouse Park or carlin Park in Jupiter, beach volleyball courts, baseball fields and bocce courts in Carlin Park, walking and jogging trails in Carlin Park and along Jupiter Riverwalk from the beach to Jupiter Yacht Club and Harbourside Place, fishing piers such as Juno Beach Pier and DuBois Park, barbeque areas along the south side of Jupiter Inlet, party pavilions by Marcinski in Juno Beach and much more.
FLORIDA BEACHES – Family fun on the beach is easy from barrier islands like Jupiter Island, Singer Island and Palm Beach to mainland beaches like Jupiter & Juno Beach. Many Palm Beach County beaches offer free parking for swimming, fishing, walking and surfing like Juno Beach and Jupiter with 3.5 miles of public beach. The Gulf Stream is not far away so the local Atlantic Ocean waters maintain a high average water temperature of 78° F (26 °C) year-around.
