Lots of family friendly activities. There are ball fields,bocci courts and of course the beach and its activities. Surfers love it because there are good breakers especially down by the jetty. Wind surfers enjoy it for the same reason. Lots of picnic tables and several pavilions with BBQ. Groups can make arrangements for outings. There is an outdoors music shell... More

I was invited to a family function at this park and loved the ambiance of the place. The choice of being in a cabana on the seaside or in a cabana in a park setting was great. The Bar-b-Que grills at each cabana are wonderful as you just have to bring your coals and grill your picnic lunch. The restrooms... More

Our family and friends had a great time at the Carlin Park Beach. Parking is free, the scenery is gorgeous, and there are lifeguards on duty in a particular section of the park just behind the restaurant. The lifeguards did not allow for distractions, surfboards, or skimboards in the water in a particular area; I imagine it's a distraction and... More

Have been coming to Carlin Park for many years. Enjoy the beach; the pavilions are perfect for sitting and reflecting, as well as for big group bar-b-ques, etc. Even our dog loves going to run with us on the grass out front.

Visited this park on our time inJupiter. Very clean, neat and wonderful for enjoying the beach, picnic, ball game, or just hanging out. The beach access is easy and the beach is terrific. The picnic area is varied. There is at least one large picnic pavilion to reserve for a big group. The Civic Center also is on the grounds.... More
