Our three public parks provide more recreational facilities than Florida's other 13 deepwater seaports combined. There is a park here to suit everyone's style, from 35-acre Jetty Park with its beach, campground and full range of activities to quiet 4-acre Rodney S. Ketcham Park.
In addition to our parks, a mile and a half of bike paths run, from the eastern boundary at Jetty Park through the Port. And note that all boat-launching ramps located within the Port are free and open to the public.
While you are visiting our beaches and parks, you may get the chance to see some of our protected species.
Jetty Park is one of the most popular recreation spots in Brevard County. Besides the 4.5 acre family beach with its designated areas for swimming and surfing (lifeguards on duty year round), one of this park's best-loved features is the 1,200 foot Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier - open from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., paved, lighted, equipped with fish-cleaning tables with running water and fully accessible to the physically challenged. Specially designed beach wheelchairs give access both to the beach and pier. A recently renovated and expanded building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a bait and tackle shop.
Jetty Park also contains a 210-site campground with options from rustic tent areas to full RV hook-ups. We also have 8 cabins available to rent.
