  • Love this park. Easy access to the beach. Beach is clean and well taken care of. Love that you can wash off when you leave 
  • Almost don't want to tell anyone how fabulous this spot is so no one else goes!;) Nature trail, restrooms, beautiful sandy beach, parking is great, just all-around awesome:) 
  • This beach does not have the amenities of nearby Pier restaurants and shops but that's fine by me. This is the most non-touristy part of Cocoa Beach which I love! When I find time to make it to the be...  more »

  • 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!
