Space Coast Parks & Rec: James Nance Park, Indialantic, FL

Many people who visit the Space Coast do so for a variety of reasons...maybe they want to see a rocket launch....some come for our great weather...the beach calls many here...surfing is a big draw...and of course Brevard County is a great place to see a manatee or sea turtles.

When it comes to viewing sea turtles you might not find a better place to start then James H. Nance Park in Indialantic, FL.

The park is loaded with amenities...from the beach of course to a beach volleyball stadium with seating for fans to a children's playground and of course showers and bathroom facilities. Nance Park is also within walking distance of beach style shopping, restaurants (Bizzaro's Pizza will make you think you are in NYC), and 5th Ave (Indialantic's shopping and eating district).

The Sea Turtles will nest along the entire coastal area here is Brevard but because the Sea Turtle Preservation Society is located just a short walk away this area is heavily monitored and I have seen many large sea turtles lay eggs well as the baby turtles make their way back to the ocean after they hatch...a truly amazing experience!!!

James H. Nance well as it's long maze of boardwalks...has ample parking for large weekend crowds (keep in mind the parking here is all meter pay parking so bring coins....25 cents gets you 15 minutes) so come on down and enjoy the beach...and maybe grab a coffee at Starbucks or a great slice of pizza at Bizzaro's!

Here are some pictures of James H. Nance Park:
