Very nice and quiet place. The view from pier is amazing! Some people are coming here to catch a fish, but we just enjoyed our lunch and spectacular view! This is also kinda historic place - here was a fist railroad connecting land and coastal shores (however what u see now is just replica of the real railroad)

Grass and playground, children should love it and a good place to go after a day at the beach. A nice pier to walk out on the river and a great place to watch the sunset

We were able to see the opposite shore from Melbourne and it is the only time I have ever seen 10+ communities firework displays simultaneously. Right near old town and restaurants and shops...

This is a quiet little park with a playground, beautiful gazebo and a pier out over the river. There are places for a picnic and is especially beautiful at sunset! Great for families, couples or just for people watching.

Really fantastic park in Melbourne Beach, a quiet little beach town. This park is the most scenic I have ever been too, with a fishing pier that goes hundreds of yards right out into the Indian River

Great park for the kids. Right by the river, this park has a nice pavillion and great playground. Enjoy the basketball court or just sitting watching the kids play.

We were staying at the SeaGlass Inn Bed and Breakfast, Ryckman Park is just across the street, they were having the Melbourne Beach Founders Day Celebration while we were there. This is a very nice park, with trails, tennis courts, community center and best of all a great playground for the kids.
