A great place to take a stroll on the river. Great sunset views, birdwatching , fishing and people watching. Within walking distance library, market, restaurants bed and breakfast. It was once the site if a ferry crossing from the mainland with a 1 mile rail connection across the island to the Atlantic.

Not only an interesting spot of great historical significance, the park has tennis courts and sidewalks that wind around plus gazebos and clean restrooms. The children's playscape is well maintained and the walks lead to the pier that gives a gorgeous view of the river. Great for children and also, for romantic moments. Sunsets are also divine from this location.

This is a great little park for younger kids. Kids have a great time here. I have thrown many birthday parties for my kids here. Great family park.

Here's the original home restored and available to tour. Melbourne Beach is the first incorporated town beachside and this shows how people lived with AC or electricity.

Very nice and quiet place. The view from pier is amazing! Grass and playground, children should love it and a good place to go after a day at the beach.

This pier is a popular fishing spot, but it also has a beautiful view of the Indian River Lagoon. Pelicans seem to enjoy this place as well. There are benches around to sit and relax.

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)
