We come here regularly, every time we visit the area. While other parks charge admission, this one does not. Facilities include life guards, restrooms, outdoor shower and foot wash. Closer to the highway there is a children's play area and covered picnic pavilion. There is a private vendor who sells hot dogs, shaved ice, etc. There is usually also chair/umbrella... More

We got a kick out of seeing two raccoons cross the path just in front of us. Quick, quiet access to the beach, where we saw godwits and sanderlings. Nice to find wildlife so close to the busy highway.

We were told that I Dream of Jeannie was filmed here but I don't think so. A cute little park that makes the beach accessible and has a great area for children (and dogs)!

Lori Wilson Park has a large car park and gives quick and easy access to Cocoa Beach. Rest rooms are provided and nice short walks through dunes. 30 minute walk to Cocoa Beach Pier, just turn left when you hit the beach.

With this park the parking is free! This part of Cocoa Beach is clean and not very crowded (I'm sure it's different in March-September).

It is a free place to park and go onto the beach. We went on a cold, blustery day. The ocean was lovely. People were still playing on the beach, even though you could not swim....there were storm warnings. Nice place to walk the beach and pick up a few small shells.

Rented bikes and rode to the park. Has nice playground, a nature trail that leads to the beach & a dog park. My son loved the dog park, the owners/locals were super friendly & let him play with their dogs.

They have a cool little nature trail and then board walk to access the beach with various alcoves, seats and tables. Great place for hanging out and reading at the beach if you don't want to lay out in the sand.

This is a city park that also has a dog park. It is very well maintained and is used frequently by locals. There is free parking and beach access.
