Work is progressing on schedule for the opening by the end of this year of Waterway Park, adjacent to the Jonathan’s Landing on the southwest corner of the Intracoastal Waterway and Indiantown Road in Jupiter.

Work is continuing on Burt Reynolds Park west to build more boat trailer parking.
The $5 million Waterway Park will have three boat ramps, a launch basin, a fishing pier and overlook, a restroom building, 52 boat trailer parking spaces and 20 vehicle spaces.

The 30-acre Waterway Park’s main entrance will be on the south side of Indiantown Road at Jonathan’s Landing. A second entrance is planned about a block east of the Jonathan’s Landing entrance, near the Indiantown Road bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway.
Exit for all vehicles will be from in front of the Jonathan’s Landing gatehouse.
The added public boat ramps and trailer parking are needed to service the about 40,000 recreational boaters in Palm Beach County.
Bert Winters Park and Burt Reynolds Park are over capacity, say north county officials.
Volunteers have planted some 35,000 red mangrove seedlings and created a 1-acre maritime hammock at the southern end of the peninsula at Waterway Park.
