If you have made a resolution to have a healthier lifestyle, ring in the New Year at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park. Welcome the New Year with your friends and family by getting outside to exercise and reconnect with nature. Take a walk on our beautiful nature trails, stroll along the beach in the fresh salt air, or enjoy a bike ride on our paved bicycle path.

Fort Pierce Inlet State Park will sponsor a free, ranger-led hike at 10:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day as part of America's State Parks "First Day Hikes" initiative. Celebrate the New Year by discovering some of Fort Pierce Inlet State Park history. Join us for a special ranger-guided walk and learn about the wreck of the Spanish Plate Fleet in 1715 that gave us the nickname of “The Treasure Coast.” Find out why the inlet side of the park is called “Dynamite Point” and what that name has to do with the U.S. Navy SEALs. Come to Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and learn about the history of our beautiful state.

On February 7, Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and the Conservation Alliance of Saint Lucie County will host the 21st Annual “Party in the Park." This event features environmental, historical and educational exhibits from many local organizations. There will be live music, ecologically themed exhibits and refreshments all day. Help us celebrate our environment and enjoy Fort Pierce Inlet State Park.

Fort Pierce Inlet State Park will hold their 7th Annual Kids Fishing Clinic on Saturday, March 14. This clinic is a great opportunity for kids from the ages of 6-12 to learn about Florida fish, aquatic habitats and resource stewardship. The clinic will consist of hands on stations where kids will listen, learn, touch and play their way to be more conservational and ethical fishermen. This event is sponsored by FishFlorida.

Please see the “Events” tab for details and specific times of the above listed events.
