Crane Creek Sanctuary

Hours of operation: Monday through Sunday, day use only.

This 16-acre sanctuary provides protection to a portion of the shoreline along Crane Creek in Melbourne. The only access to the site is by kayak or canoe from Riverview Park on US Highway 1 in Melbourne. Due to the small size of this site, and limited physical access, the only planned recreational development is a kayak and canoe landing intended to provide a brief rest stop for paddlers venturing up Crane Creek.
