A beautiful unspoiled stretch of beach in the heart of town. Very peaceful place to listen to the wind and waves.

It was a beautiful and clean beach. We were able to rent an umbrella and 2 chairs for $20. It is a long walk from the parking area to the beach. If you need handicap or stroller accessible, this might not be the best choice. They do have "rinse off stations" there. When we were there, half of them were... More

Clean beach with bathrooms, shower, and a park for kids. The access to the ocean is clear and great. Great place for families.

This is a great park along A1A. There is plenty of free parking, shelters for cook outs and restrooms and showers. There is also a dog park there for your dogs, but they are not allowed on the beach. No dogs allowed due to sea turtle nests. There is good beach access from both of the parking areas and the... More

Lori Wilson Park is probably the least crowded stretch of beach you'll find on Space Coast and it comes with a perk of free parking - You might want to get there early or late (before 9AM or after 4PM) because during summer months on the weekend the parking tends to fill up quickly. There is pretty much nothing there... More

This is my favorite quiet spot on the beach to walk, shell, read, listen to music, run into friends, i recommend for a loving picnic with family or that special person

We were delighted to get married at the beach in Florida between back to back cruises with NCL our of Port Carnaveral. It was a 15 minute cab ride to meet with Diane, our officiant. She took us across the street to Lori Wilson Park where we walked down a boardwalk to the beach. It was stunning! Turquoise water and... More

Great family friendly beach. Good, consistent surf, beach breaks in multiple spots. Shower and restroom facility is maintained and usually in good condition. Rentals available and the concession stand has some good stuff. Gets crowded on weekends.

This is a great park, easy access to the beach and great snow cones. There was plenty of free parking and a nice area to wash the sand off as well as a nice changing area.

This was a great little find for our family. Amenities include restrooms, free parking, concession stand, rentals (kayak, paddle boards, boogie boards, etc.) As another reviewer mentioned the park could use some updating (restrooms in particular) but the bathrooms were clean and fully stocked with toilet paper. Highly recommend if looking for a free place to park!
