A Total Waste of Time
Jun 2021
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.

Beautiful and breezy
Apr 2021
Visited this park on a lovely breezy day in Titusville. The park was clean and quiet with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the views and memorial to the Space program.

Very awesome tribute to NASA
Jul 2020
Incredible monuments and memorials to all aspects of the US Space program. We enjoyed reading through all the information here and the incredible pictures etched in the plaques. There was an added attraction as several small gators were in the water part of the park. The only downfall was the summer sun made most of these plaques, especially the handprints too hot to touch, so an early am visit might be better.

Fence Obstructs View of Rocket Launch
Jul 2020 • Family
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.***

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!

Houston, we have a problem
May 2020
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.

Nice Little Off-The-Beaten-Path Park
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had driven by this park multiple times but had never stopped. We had some extra time today so we decided to give it a look.

It’s definitely worth a visit. It’s a nice area full of cool monuments, many containing hand prints and autographs of many of the most important astronauts. There are lots of educational markers and it’s all set in a beautiful little area.

Space View Park is a nice way to spend an hour or so.

Monuments commemorating the space program and view for rocket launch
Jan 2020
We watched a rocket launch from this area (though actually we went a little farther up the street-- fewer people and slightly better view) and that was nice. No broadcast of NASA audio the day we were there. It looks like the park used to have more of a boardwalk area along the river but that is fenced off for now-- damaged in Hurricane Irene. The park has many plaques and statues honoring astronauts and others involved in the space program and a nice water feature. We thought it was cool that some of the plaques honored grounds crew, development engineers, etc. who worked on the projects. Those people don't get mentioned as much as they deserve. Plenty of free city parking nearby.
