The 225-foot-long stationary bridge, opened in 2015, was built by the town for about $1.1 million. Admission is free and the fishing pier — there are no public restrooms — is open 24 hours.

The pier is a growing attraction among the Things To Do in Jupiter.

Bait fishing is also popular.

Don’t forget the free parking in the nearby parking lot.

With the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse in the distance, boaters drifting by and tropical birds swooping overhead, these pals said it was a little tough keeping their minds on fishing’.

While the fishing’ is fun from this spot on Sawfish Bay Park, everybody has to be careful.

Kayakers and stand-up paddle boarders launch nearby. And sometime boaters come pretty close. So for this Things To Do Jupiter activity, be alert.

Parking is free. So is admission. And the town recently installed new public rest rooms. There’s a picnic table under a shaded gazebo.
