From bocce ball courts to community gatherings, Ryckman Park is a true, local gem. Updated kid's play area has been planned, close walk to beautiful Melbourne Beach and clean amenities, as well as good sized pavillion to host parties and weddings.

This place has a great playground for kids and you can fish off the pier on the river. There is limited parking but it's usually not a problem.

I have seen weddings in the gazebo in the park but don't know about on the pier. I would guess photos are permitted on the pier. Congrats on your upcoming wedding -- Wishing you much love & happiness!

Yes, I have seen many folks with dogs on a leash at this park....usually passing through. I don't see as many on the pier but mostly in the park. Not sure if dogs are allowed on the pier.
