Very nice park at the north end of New Smyrna Beach. This place has it all. 1.5 mile boardwalk around the park, a dog friendly beach, access to beaches on the river, Ponce Inlet, and the ocean. Lots of Gopher Tortoises to be seen, in addition to sea birds.
Come on a bicycle or on foot and there is no charge. Cars are charged a parking fee. ($5 a day, I think)

you have to go at sunset watch the sun go down and the moon come up over the Ponce Inlet, its a miracle

Worth the $5 admission to just either walk the 1.5 mile boadwalk and get best views in town of intracoastal, ocean and dunes. Or bring your dog and go to the dog park - they do now have some funky rules about dogs though. Or pack a cooler and hang on the beach or the white sands of the intracoastal and watch the boat traffic. A real gem of NSB.

We have just moved to New Smyrna and were so pleased to find this park. Very well maintained with plenty of endangered gopher turtles to watch burrowing in the sand while you walk along the boardwalks. We saw an immature bald eagle as well. The walkways are well maintained above the ground so as not to disturb the animals. Plenty to see. People use it as a running exercise area so you have plenty of people who enjoy nature passing by.

Husband and I decided to check out this park on the recommendation of an artist friend. We were not planning on "going to the beach", saw the boardwalk and thought "how far could this be?" Well, it is about a mile and a half straight down the boardwalk to the beach. We took a side boardwalk that overlooked the lighthouse and inlet and then walked along the beach thinking it would meet up with the main boardwalk quickly. It didn't, so here I was strolling down the beach in a dress, dressy wedges, purse in hand! It must have looked crazy. The beach and dunes are beautiful, though. Would certainly recommend if going to the beach that you do not forget anything in the car, as it is not a quick trip back to retrieve it. And make sure you bring water on your nature walk! Lovely park.
