Kelly Park on the Banana River Lagoon

Brevard County Kelly Park Recreation Complex

Banana River Lagoon Boat Launch Pavillions and Playgrounds

Friday June 22, 2018

The most popular boat launch on the Banana River Lagoon is the quaint Kelly Park on Merritt Island's North Banana River Drive. Nestled against the popular Beachline or State Road 528 this County Park greets many visitors as they enter the beach area and see the popular Exploration Tower and Cruise ships across the lagoon.

Kelly Park has it's humble beginnings when dredging was popular for waterfront homes and the abundant fill from State Road 528 was being sucked up from the Lagoon's sea grass beds and dumped on the shoreline. Apparently a person with the name Kelly had the foresight to dig a basin and dredge a channel for the growing population of NASA employees that lived on the North Banana River corridor. Kelly's Park is now grown into a popular place for recreation and is maintained by the Brevard County Parks and Recreation division.

There is limited parking near the boat ramp and visitors are encouraged to park on the north entrance of the park and use that parking lot when they are not trailering their boats. There is ample trailer parking on the south east park and a couple of handicap spaces available too.
