Named after one of Cocoa Beach mayors, the 10-acre oceanfront Sidney Fischer Park is a perfect place for a family picnic and a relaxing beach day on the Atlantic shore. The park is equipped with all necessary facilities including a convenient parking lot, restrooms, outdoor showers, shaded picnic areas, and pavilions. There are plenty of trees and is a huge grassy area with a children’s playground.
