This is one of the few places in the area where your pup can run unleased in the fenced areas. Friendly people are regulars here, and it is always nice to meet new friends. No dogs allowed on the beach, though.

One of my favorite Brevard County beaches!!! I spend all afternoon there and nobody ever sits right on top of me. Best part is watching the ice cream man go by with the cart!!!

Great place to take the family. There are pavilions, picnic tables, bathrooms and playground equipment for the children plus a short walk takes you to the beach. There was no charge for parking or day use. Hidden gem!

Having been to Cocoa Beach before, but further south, I’d never seen Lori Wilson park before. This is a bit of a hidden gem - free parking, great little park, boardwalk to the beach and even a little guy renting out parasols, sun loungers, surf...More

No dogs on the beach. However they're allowed in the park and there is a fenced dog play area near the front.

No fee to swim and no parking fee either. Two beach chairs and an umbrella are $20 but you are not required to rent these. There are also other optional rentals like boogie boards and SUPs.
