Parks: Humiston, Jaycee, Riverside, and Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary
Parks, playgrounds, picnic areas, benches, and biking and exercise trails are in abundant supply in Vero Beach. There is actually an extraordinary amount of parks in relation to the small area and population.
There is a park for practically everyone. Families would especially enjoy Jaycee or Humiston parks. Both are beachside, with playgrounds, picnic facilities and beach access.
Fitness buffs looking to walk, jog, play tennis, or sit for a spell should check out Riverside Park with its winding paths beneath the shade of hanging moss and 100-year-old oak trees.
Near Riverside Park, just over a small pedestrian bridge that leads toward an American flag, is the Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary on the Indian River Lagoon. Go at dusk, sit on one of the many wooden benches, and catch a memorable sunset.
