We here at Quality Comfort would like to highlight our first destination of discovery in Brevard: Wickham Park. Wickham Park is a public park, that sits on 391 acres, located at 2500 Parkway Drive in Melbourne, Florida. Wickham Park has multiple large scenic lakes for swimming, several ponds, lush floral nature trails accessible for walking, jogging, and bicycling, extensive frisbee golf courses and archery ranges, horse stables and equestrian obstacle courses, fenced-in, off-leash secure dog parks, numbered exercise trails, multiple picnic pavilions and BBQ grills, fully equipped campgrounds, several ball fields, and playgrounds all serve to make Wickham Park one of the best family parks in Brevard County.
Aside from the year-round beauty of the park, being free of charge and open to the public daily, Wickham Park also hosts several large events annually that draw countless locals and tourists alike. Space Coast Lightfest, an annual Christmas event in November/December, sees the park decked out in Christmas Lights in an amazing and unforgettable display of festive awe that must be seen to be believed, and once seen is never forgotten.
Archery lessons with Brevard Archers and competitions are regularly hosted each month. The Vietnam Memorial, Indiafest, and the Strawberry Festival are just a few of the other annual events hosted in the park. Movies in the park are hosted regularly in Wickham park, where family-friendly movies for all ages are shown, free of charge in a beautiful park setting. So whether you're looking to swim in one of the many available lakes, bike the various cycling trails, hike and photograph the gorgeous nature trails, BBQ, or picnic at the many open pavilions, check out a show or movie at the amphitheater, jog or get in shape utilizing the exercise trail, fly your drone above the 391-acre park, or just spend time with family or friends checking out the many ways to spend a day in the park, you really can't go wrong, with so many choices and options.
