We walked the beach to Lori Wilson Park. We took the nature trail which gives you a look at what the area looked like before construction along the beach. A great quite, peaceful place to slow down in this busy world. There are plenty of benches to sit and listen to the quite.

Beachin' it in December? What could be better! Mid 70's felt hotter. Soft white cool sand and a nice group of all ages enjoying the day.

As a local I'm biased. This is, admittedly, not my favorite beach spot or even access with amenities. Kudos to the dog park, it is very nice if you need a place to go for you and your pooch. There is always a lifeguard on-duty, bathrooms/rinse stations, small nature walk, free parking, grilling, and a swing set. This park is... More

Nice park, playground for the kids, lifeguards, and a beautiful beach. Close to all Cocoa Beach has to offer and also the Port.

We spent a pleasant 40 minutes in the small dogs area with our 12 year old Schipperke, and on a Thursday morning, had it all to ourselves. Plenty of chairs for the owners, several water bowls, balls to play with, and poop bags provided. Appreciated the clean grass, not one "pile" in evidence. This park is well looked after -... More

This location has an excellent dog park well-stocked with water/bowls, toys and shade for people and pets. Its well-lit for early evening walks and the people going there are quite personable. It was an enjoyable time going there with our pets.

What a relaxing and beautiful beach! A short walk through a 'palm forest' to a boardwalk that ends in sand dunes which lead out into this perfectly soft beach. I would suggest renting an umbrella from A1A Beach Rentals on your way to the park

While staying in Cocoa Beach we brought our dachshund almost daily to the dog park. They have two fenced yards. One for small dogs and one for big dogs. There's an enclosed entrance so that you can enter safely before entering the occupied areas. The park provides plenty of seating, water bowls, a pool, and poop bags. The park is... More

My family stayed at the sandcastles condo, so it was only a walk down the beach. I heard parking was expensive. There was a wedding going on at the beach. Swings for the little ones there!
