About Jetty Park

Jetty Park Fort Pierce is one of the more popular places on the Treasure Coast for fishing on foot, but there are other available activities, too. 

Fort Pierce is located on the southeast Atlantic Coast of Florida, on the Indian River Lagoon in St. Lucie County. Fort Pierce Jetty Park is located at the edge of the Fort Pierce Inlet and South Hutchinson Island. Hutchinson Island is a long and thin barrier island. Hutchinson Island is not only a recreational draw for locals and visitors to the area. It’s also a nesting site for endangered sea turtles and the ideal place to enjoy native Florida wildlife.

Jetty Park is popular among visitors for viewing the sunrise and also for recreation and outdoor activities. Because of the viewpoints for the sunrise, along with early-morning fishing, photographers also frequent the park. 

Four shaded historical kiosks are part of Jetty Park Fort Pierce, which detail the history of the area, especially related to World War II, the Navy Seals, and the Vietnam era. There are sidewalks throughout the historical markers, so you can walk or bike. Mosaic benches throughout the park were created by local community artists, reflecting the fishing-centric culture of Fort Pierce.

The beach at the park is a spot for kite surfers on a windy day and swimmers and snorkelers when the water is calmer. 

People who fish the Fort Pierce Jetty Park have caught everything from jack crevalle to snapper, ladyfish, and many others. Snooks are here year-round, as are tarpon and mackerel. The jetties of Fort Pierce are generally popular among anglers who want to bring in bigger catches without going out on a boat. 

Fort Pierce is St. Lucie County’s county seat, and the Indian River Lagoon boasts clear, clean water. The Fort Pierce Inlet connects it with the Atlantic Ocean, and there are a number of other parks throughout the inlet, including Moore’s Creek, South Beach, and Maravilla Park, as well as Jetty Park. The area parks are popular because the Fort Pierce Inlet keeps them clean and allows in just the right amount of salinity. 

There is a Fort Pierce Jetty Park webcam available online around the clock, so you can check the conditions before heading out. 

Jetty Park is within walking distance of a number of restaurants and bars for grabbing a snack, drink, or meal before or after your visit. Free parking is available nearby.
