Things to do in Palm Bay
Turkey Creek Sanctuary
Part of the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) program, Turkey Creek Sanctuary is a stunning 130 acres of Florida biodiversity and natural resources. Enjoy a stroll through sand pine scrub communities and wetland hammock on the 1.85-mile boardwalk, or stretch your legs on the 1.5 miles of jogging trails. Be sure to keep a lookout for the locals — manatees, alligators, and otters! If you want to learn more about the local wildlife, visit one of the on-site interpretive exhibits at the Margaret Hames Nature Center.
Palm Bay Aquatic Center
The recently refurbished Palm Bay Aquatic Center is a family-friendly water park located in Palm Bay. The perfect place to spend long summer days, Palm Bay Aquatic Center has lots of fun things to do for adults and children alike. With 25-yard lap lanes, diving wells, water toys, and a large water slide, there’s something for the whole family. Plus, they also offer swim lessons and rentals for private parties and events!
Castaways Point Park
Castaways Point Park is a local park known for its gorgeous views and for being one of the few natural beaches on the Indian River Lagoon. If you enjoy fishing, you’ll love the two piers that are perfect for catching spotted sea trout! Home to plenty of native wildlife, such as manatees and porpoises, and an ideal location to watch a space coach shuttle or rocket launch, there’s always something to see at Castaways Point Park!
