I discovered this great little park while driving through town and could imagine how neat it would have been to see a SpaceX rocket launch on that day!

Lovely memorials and tributes for Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and the Space Shuttle programs. Really nice to see if you are a Space enthusiast. Keep in mind that there is little to no shade at the park, so don’t go when the sun is really strong!

This was the spot my family would go to watch the Apollo launches back in the day. It is great that it is a park now to remember those days and hopefully welcome other families to watch launches in the future.

No, but Launch Audio operations have "shifted to the right a little bit". The amplifier with Launch Audio is now set up underneath the large Flagpole in the co-located Veteran's Memorial Park at the foot of Broad St.

I recommend that you get there an hour or so before takeoff as the die hard viewers will flock there also. The docks and waterfront were fenced off due to hurricane damage when we were there so seating area and standing room... More

Final Shuttle Launch (2 Replies)
My wife and I decided today to take a trip from Maryland down to the Cape to watch the launch of Atlantis. We've never been to a launch before and are very excited to be able to see the last one. That said, I'm just wondering about the viewing at Space View Park. It's my understanding that the place will be an absolute zoo, which is no big deal. However, to get a spot, are we allowed/able to stake one out with a tent the night before and wait through the night? Is there a time they let people...More

If you're going to get there between 12am and 2 am before the launch, i would head right to the park and set up and wait. It's going to be a madhouse. Especially leaving.

Trip Report Shutle Launch Discovery (7 Replies)
Shuttle launch trip report: Discovery May 31, 2008: There are only ten shuttle launches scheduled for the remainder of the shuttle program. After watching shuttle launches since the inception of the program from the roof of the building where I worked or my back yard I decided that once before the program ended I should go see one up close and personal. I left Kissimmee around 12:45 PM for a 5:02 PM launch. I arrived at Space View Park in Titusville around 2:00 PM, three hours before...More

Thanks for the report Cruiser. I have only made 2 launches "in person." Apollo 11, me and 4 million others. I was in a parking lot at Port Canaveral. And a Shuttle launch 20 years ago from the side of the road in Mims. Today, as I have often done, watched from my back yard. Got a good view here on the east side of Tampa. Went back in the house and watched NASA Channel for the next 15 minutes or so. Joe Tampa FL

Trip Report - Shuttle Launch, Feb. 7 (Atlantis) (3 Replies)
Wow! Thanks to all of you for the information on the Shuttle Launch on Feb. 7th. We arrived at Space View Park in Titusville (from Ocala) about 12:00 noon for the 2:45 launch. It was cloudy the whole way to Titusville, but by noon, the clouds disappeared and by launch time, all was clear. The Space View Park area has to be the very best place in the world to view any shuttle launch. We arrived early enough that we were very near the water with a head-on view of the shuttle directly in...More
