Rotary Park Merritt Island

The wooded drive into this 37.77-acre community park leads visitors to a full-featured playground. Nearby, an interpretive nature boardwalk invites walks and a Nature Center offers exhibits, tours and classes. To schedule a tour or arrange a visit to the Nature Center, call (321) 455-1385. Only service animals are permitted at Rotary Park.

The Arnold Memorial Pavilion with 4 grills is adjacent to restrooms with a paved walkway leading to the playground and benches. Four picnic shelters, grills, picnic tables, and a grass volleyball court invite leisure activity. A multi-use field, paved pedway, and a pavilion with serving area and restrooms was completed as part of the Parks Referendum.
