Covering 32 acres along the Atlantic shore, Lori Wilson Park is a regional beach park operated by the Brevard County Parks and Recreation Department. It features a maritime hammock and serves as a popular site for both public events and private group gatherings. Activities that can be enjoyed here include surf fishing, picnicking, strolling, bird watching, and swimming, with lifeguards on duty seasonally.
Among the numerous facilities in the park are three pavilions, paved walkways, a sand volleyball court, a children's playground, four dune crossovers, and a 3,155-foot nature boardwalk with interpretive signs. There are also grassy areas for relaxing or playing games, barbecue grills, picnic tables, drinking fountains, restrooms, and outdoor showers.
One of the most active sections of Lori Wilson Park is its fenced dog park, offering 32,000 square feet of space for large and small dogs to romp freely off-leash. To use the dog park, a record of current vaccinations is required, and every pet must wear a valid Brevard County license tag or the equivalent from their home authorities.
Lori Wilson Park is located at 1500 North Atlantic Avenue, Cocoa Beach, Florida 32931. Operating hours are from 7am until dark daily, except for scheduled use. Alcoholic beverages are permitted in designated areas only.
