Is Ponce Inlet a State Park?

ponce inlet park

Is Ponce Inlet a state park? While Ponce Inlet is one of the most peaceful and private towns in Central Florida - with beach, river and coastal foliage abound- the city itself is not a state park. There is however a state-owned, and Volusia County managed, park at the southernmost tip of Ponce Inlet called Lighthouse Point Park. This 52-acre park is located at 5000 S Atlantic Avenue, Ponce Inlet and features elevated boardwalks, natural trails, a scenic observation tower, the 800’ foot jetty deck, and of course, a dog-friendly swimming beach. Yes, this hidden gem of a park is one of the only areas you can bring your pup to the beach along our Central Florida coast.
