We love Lori Wilson Park, and have parked there for years. I love the real bathrooms in addition to the foot wash stations.

We heard this was a must-see venue. It was nothing spectacular at all. Very small plot of green grass that eventually connected to the beach. We didn't get it. Left in 30 seconds.

I'm so glad I researched before we arrived in Cocoa Beach! Traveling with 2 kids means you need to be close to bathrooms and food, and this park delivered. Park free, short walk to the water, HUGE expansive Beach area, and restrooms with outdoor showers....More

Not many places left in Cocoa Beach that offer free parking and I hope it stays this way. The park has bathrooms and an outdoor shower area. There were lifeguards on duty here and its a very short walk from parking to beach. This park...More

Free parking and outdoor showers were very nice. The bathrooms could use some work, but still a very lovely beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas for rent for $20, but they take them away at 4pm so it seemed very pricey. We had a great time!...More

We arrived at 2 pm on a Saturday and the parking lot was full. We managed to find a space of someone leaving. The beach itself was pleasant. The water was warm and murky with seaweed. The waves were moderate. There were many families on...More

Nothing spectacular, but a nice clean park with great beach access. We did the trail...again nothing to rave about but something to get away from the sun. A shame it's not bigger. It allows you a glimpse of how the area may have looked years...More

There are two parking lots. In my experience the southern lot (I dream of Jeannie Lane) is slower to fill up. The south lot is closer to the dog park, but further from the kiddie playground. Nice wide beach. A lot wider at low tide,...More

We went in July. Was busy but still plenty of space on the beach and water to enjoy a day there. Depending on the weather there is a rental place at Lori Wilson park that you can rent things at that location. Other... More

The water has been cooling off so I'm not sure how it will be next month but people are still going in so it must not be too bad. Our area is fairly wavy after all Cocoa Beach is the surf capital of the east coast so it's... More
