About Lori Wilson Park

Lori Wilson Park is centrally located between the Cocoa Beach Pier and Downtown Cocoa Beach. It’s the perfect location for our beachside air show and easy to get to no matter where you’re staying on the Space Coast. 

How to Get Around 

Now is a great time to utilize the Cocoa Beach Trolley. The trolley service runs Monday through Saturday from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm and on Sunday from 7:45 am to 5:40 pm from Port Canaveral to 13th Street in Cocoa Beach. A ride on the trolley costs $1.50 with a special rate of .75 for seniors, veterans, disabled, and students. There is no charge for children under 5 or for transfers to fixed-route bus service. Please have the exact fare ready when riding a bus/trolley. Drivers are not equipped to make change. The Cocoa Beach Trolley is route #9. Trolleys will be running every 20 minutes on Saturday and every 30 minutes on Sunday - so no matter when you decide to hop on, another trolley is on the way!
