Tequesta Park gets a facelift

Tequesta Park is sporting a new look, as the exotic trees and those damaged in hurricanes in 2005 have been removed and in their place are more than 600 new trees, plus refurbished tennis courts. In addition, a paved walkway winds throughout the 45 acres which the Village of Tequesta leases from the State of Florida.

The parcel of land was originally part of Jonathan Dickinson State Park, immediately to its north, according to Greg Corbitt, Tequesta parks and recreation director. The village was able to create the park’s improvements through two $50,000 grants.

“We had to create a detailed site plan,” said landscape architect Connie Fisher of Roy Fisher and Associates Landscape Architects. “We did a survey of the residents on a Saturday here at the park and did a second survey of the residents online to see what they wanted this park to be. The wanted trees, better tennis courts, space to play rugby, a dog area, and a perimeter walking trail. We’re still working on the designated dog area, but people love to walk their dogs in this park anyway.”

I lived on the Jupiter/Tequesta line for about 10 years and loved it.  Everything about the places is great!  If we ever leave Jupiter Farms, we would certainly move back to Tequesta!
