This 96-page guide book is sponsored by the Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park (JDSP). The park is special because it is an oasis of calm sandwiched between rapidly growing towns--Juniter-Tequesta to the south and Stuart-Hobe Sound to the north. Within these 11,500 acres are a wild and scenic river and the same wildlife that were seen by generations of Native Americans, pioneer growers and railroad builders. And for many, the park is a poignant part of our own family histories. We come here to enjoy, reflect, and remember. Because we hope you will too, this booklet tells the history, the ecology, the activities, and the challenges of maintaining its wild and scenic nature.
