Sawfish Bay Park in Jupiter, Palm Beach County FL

Sawfish Bay Park (01)Sawfish Bay Park is located in Jupiter, Florida at 1133 North Alternate A1A near the intersection of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Loxihatchee River at the Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach County. The park was constructed at a location that has been important to the Jupiter area since settlers first arrived in the 1700's. Sawfish Bay served as a center of commerce connecting the railroad and waterways to industrial traffic. The first written record of settlement in the Jupiter area shows that Frederick Cabot built a house near this park in 1892. Today a "Cabot" oak tree, more than 200 years old, still stands on the property. The park is owned and maintained by the town of Jupiter and is open to the public from 6:00am to 12:00am daily. Sawfish Bay Park was dedicated on July 17, 2007
