Lori Wilson Park

Space Coast

A 32-acre, coastal park with a mellow vibe and facilities including wheelchair access, a playground, picnic tables and grills and a small dog-play area. Parking is free and plentiful. The sand is soft and the water is shallow, with small, consistent waves that are great for anyone learning to surf.
