What this site is not telling you is that there is nothing there right now except the "7" sculpture with handprints of 4 astronauts and lists of NASA workers. NOTHING else! We drove two hours from Tampa to see what we read on this website. It takes less than five minutes to walk through it; ten if you read the little bit of text that is presented. Massive construction going on at the piers so you can't get near those at all. And it's obviously going to take a while to finish. A total waste of your time.

Part of the park and the pier has sustained severe damage and is blocked off with a chain link fence. There is no pier access. The chain link fence (along with trees) obstructs your view of the rocket launch. The grass was also very overgrown. I recommend bringing your own chairs and arriving an hour early. ***I took the second picture over the top of the fence. That is what is left of the pier.***

Small park with not much to do or see. You can visit in 5 - 10 minutes. There is a monument to the astronauts and historic facts, but it doesn't take much time to see or read the information. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it. We went there because we were going to NASA after our cruise, so stayed an overnight in Titusville. I

If one wants to sit, relax and enjoy the view, then it is different, it is a quiet little park where one can find a few benches to chill a little bit.

Scouting out Titusville for a spot to watch the SpaceX rocket launch. This park is the perfect location. Long pier in the Indian River. Clear view over the water. Only one problem.. Apparently a hurricane got here first. Pier is half in the river and twisted like a sea serpent. Still a great park to visit. Lots of space history. Definitely recommended.

Space View Park is a great place to watch the Shuttle Launch. I had been watching them from the causeway in Kennedy Space Center. But didn't want to spend the money this time so tried out the park. Has some interesting displays about the space program as well. Recommend you get as close to the railing on the Gazebo Dock as possible as to not have your view blocked.

We arrived here just before midnight last Friday to wstch the SpaceX rocket launch (originally we had planned to see it from the Kennedy Space Center but packages were $115 to see it only when it cleared the height of trees and $195 unobstructed view. However, if for some reason the launch didn't occur, the money was not refunded and for family of 3 that meant losing $345 or $585).
I did some research online and learned that Space View Park Titusville is on the other side from Kennedy with an unobstructed view across the water. We parked in the carpark near the Wells Fargo bank and walked to the waterfront and waited with other onlookers. It was a really great atmosphere listening to people who live in the area talk about other rocket launches. You could actually feel the excitement as a guy started the 5 minute countdown to launch time. We.could actually hear the noise from the rocket as it made its ascent and we watched until it disappeared from sight. We did not stay un the area as most of the hotels were fully booked and those that were not, were too pricey with horrible ratings and reviews. We stayed in Orlando and it took us 2 hours to drive there and back.

We visited the space view park at Titusville to see a rocket launch. It was a 1.20am launch and we had our children with us so we were keen to make sure we chose both a good and a safe location.

It will well lit with plenty of nearby parking. We arrived over an hour early and had a good view on the tiered walk around the park. It probably wasn’t necessary to arrive that early as even latecomers got a decent view but this was the middle of the night so probably less busy than usual - approximately 100 people.

There was a quiet and expectant atmosphere. Although inexplicably the group near us felt the need to play music on their phone as the launch took place.

You have a direct view of the launch site across the river and you can hear the noise - although not close enough to feel it with a Falcon 9 rocket.

Definitely worth a visit by day too as there are memorials to space veterans which were difficult to appreciate at night.

Damage from hurricane Irma means some of the park and the jetty is fenced but the tiered wall meant our view of the launch pad was not obstructed.

No decent photos (except of a friendly frog who kept us company) but there are plenty online and it is great just to watch and soak up the experience.

We got very lucky and stumbled across a major launch when we were driving into FL. This park was easy to get to and there was plenty of parking either in a lot or on the street within easy walking distance. Whilst it is about 11 miles away from the launch sites, you have a very nice, unobstructed view. The picture below was taken using a long lens so it makes it look closer than it is.

I had heard many horror stories about traffic and parking trying to get to one of the closer vantage points. This is certainly not the closest at all, although I don’t think you can get much closer than 5 miles unless you are actually at the center, but it is accessible and has a good view. I would go again.

Beautiful park in Titusville where we go to watch the launches from Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center. Beautiful view of the bridge and intercoastal water way.

So convenient, easy access and the best views. Today was a little crowded but you still have space to spread & enjoy the water views....we even spotted a pod of dolphins!
