    Parks are open for family activities.

    North Brevard County Parks are open Fox Lake, Sand Point Marina, Chain of Lakes, Blanton/Holder, Manzo, Parrish / Space View, Stuart & Wuesthoff
    The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is closed.

    Our parks remain open, so take the kids to the park. It is a beautiful day to take a walk in the park, get some fresh air and sunshine. If the weather is pleasant, playing outside is a terrific option when you need to get out of the house. The more natural and distant from one another, the better! Kids and families especially need fresh air and sunshine, especially during this stressful time. Some experts recommend that it's better to walk, bike, and bring riding toys. If you do go to the playground, take a packet of sanitizing wipes and wash hands often.

    North Brevard County Parks are open, but no pavilion reservations. Park pavilions are first come, first serve. Community Centers are closed. Any questions, please call 321-264-5037.
