  • If you aren't staying in a location with private beach access, this is the perfect place for you. The park offers free parking, showers, bathrooms, a food truck (with good food) and free public beach ...  more »
  • Fantastic for family picnics that are covered. Right at the beach, they have a wonderful family-friendly area. The kids can run around while Dad is cooking up the dogs and burgers. Parking is ample. Y...  more »
  • I've been in March 2017 in this park and love it. The Park has free parking, but get there early. Then it gets crowded. Has simple but clean bathrooms, with banks for people can sit and change. All mirrors are ugly, but with the salty air. There's a place for people to bring their dogs, and picnic tables. Has a that leads to forest and another that leads to the beach, which is beautiful. It is worth spending the day there.

  • Short distance from parking, across a boardwalk is a nice beach area. Decent number of people but not hard at all to find a spot with nothing between us an the water. Being able to come back to parking area and shower all the sand off before getting in the car is a nice bonus.
  • Best place to visit Cocoa Beach. It amazes me that there is still free parking available, even better is when i learn D there are actually 2 parts to this park if the main parking lot is full. Co me join the fun with paying $20 to park
  • This review is for the dog park located at Lori Wilson Park. We bring our dogs here often. There is a park for large dogs and one for small dogs. Our dogs weigh about 30 lbs and I usually take them to the large dog park. It is very well fenced and kept clean. There is water available also for the dogs to drink and a few toys. Also a few chairs to sit on. The other people who bring their dogs are very responsible. Every time I have been there I have felt that my dogs were safe. But I always leave them on a leash at first to make sure that there are no Aggressive dogs. The only negative point I can make is that it is a very busy parking lot as it is shared by the people who are also going to the Beach. I think this is a distraction to the dogs. But I am glad that the city of Cocoa Beach have made this available. It is great for the locals who live in condos to give their dogs a chance to run and play outside in a large area as dogs are not allowed on the Beach
  • Great free access to the beach. Bathrooms but no changing rooms.
  • Lori Wilson Park on Cocoa Beach is always my go to spot. It always has free parking and is a very lowkey place to relax and enjoy the beach. Don't forget to bring your sunscreen!
