The new Cinquez Park on Jupiter’s Indiantown Road is scheduled to open this summer.
Besides a dog park — with separate areas for big dogs and little dogs — the $3 million plan calls for a playground, treehouse, natural area and walking paths for people.
Dogs are required to be on a leash when they are in dog parks in Jupiter. Once the dogs enter the fence-in areas designated for dogs, they can be taken off their leash.
Cinquez Park includes a 2-acre wetlands area and will have about 70 parking spaces. The work is being done by Lake Worth-based West Construction.
Access to the park on 13 acres of town-owned property will be from Yancy Avenue and Carver Avenue.
Cinquez Park is planned to be free and open to the public. The park is scheduled to be open daily from 7:30 a.m. to sunset.
Dogs parks in Jupiter are at 211 River Park Dr. and on Jupiter Beach, north of Marcinski Road.
