The Magical Splendor Formerly Known As Dragon Point In Merritt Island, Florida

Quality Comfort Air Conditioning and Heating Inc., a family-owned and operated business in Brevard County, Florida, is deeply committed to our local community. We take pride in supporting and shedding light on the unique treasures that make Brevard County, Florida special. One such treasure is Dragon Point, located in Merritt Island, Florida.

Dragon Point holds a special place in the hearts of locals and visitors alike. This iconic landmark captivated the imagination of both adults and children and served as a beloved tourist destination. While Dragon Point may appear closed, its memory and significance endure.

Originally constructed in 1971 by local artist Lewis VanDercar and property owner Aynn Christal, the dragon, affectionately known as the Merritt Island River Dragon, stood proudly along the banks of the Indian River. With occasional fiery displays on special occasions, it served as a guardian of the area.

In 1981, Dragon Point underwent a transformation under the ownership of Warren McFadden. The dragon was given a tail, its neck was elongated, and two cave people named Fred and Wilma became part of the scene. The Dragon Point family grew with the addition of four baby dragon hatchlings named Joy, Sunshine, Charity, and Freedom.

Sadly, in 2002, the dragon fell victim to storms and acts of vandalism, leading to its demise. The absence of the dragon left a void in the community, as it had become a cherished symbol of the area's spirit.

However, in April 2015, hope was rekindled when it was announced that a new dragon would rise at Dragon Point. It was revealed that Annie, the original dragon, had a fifth hatchling named Rojak, who had been separated and hidden away. Rojak is now poised to take his rightful place on the waters of Dragon Point, restoring its former glory and majesty.

We invite you to stay tuned for updates on Rojak's progress and eagerly anticipate the official reopening of Dragon Point. Once the dragon spreads its wings again, you'll have the opportunity to experience the rich blend of history and present wonder that this magnificent creature represents.

At Quality Comfort Air Conditioning and Heating Inc., we believe in celebrating and preserving the unique gems of our community, such as Dragon Point. We are dedicated to serving Brevard County and its residents, and we are proud to be part of a community that values its local treasures.
