Ready for a move to the Cocoa Beach area? If so, I would like you to consider South Cocoa Beach in the Greenwood Subdivision off 4th St South. This part of town is more of a residential area; meaning most of the properties around you are other single-family homes. No multi-story condos or hotels off 4th St. Just single family homes, townhomes, and low-rise multi-family property. Fewer tourists and more local residents. You would be a few blocks from downtown Cocoa Beach and some of our most popular restaurants, shops, and bars. You could walk or ride your bike to Friday-fest, the Cocoa Beach Art Show, and other events downtown. If this sounds good to you, there are some great communities and subdivisions to consider; let’s focus on the Greenwood Subdivision located off 4th St South. To start with, Greenwood Lane only has 15 homes on the street and is a cul-de-sac. No extra traffic, not a through-street, sounds perfect! What’s nearby?
If you like to boat or explore our waterways, you have Ramp Road. This Cocoa Beach park has a boat ramp for your motorized boats to get on the Banana River and beyond! If you love to kayak or SUP, there are two launch areas here too. What I love about taking your kayak or SUP here is exploring the mangrove tunnels and little islands you cannot access on a boat. Ramp Road Park also has a tennis court, playground, picnic area, and in 2018, they opened a community garden here too.
The city of Cocoa Beach has its recreation center on Ramp Road too. The Rec center is open Monday through Thursday 9-9 and Friday 9-530. They have things to do year round that include basketball, karate, volleyball, Zumba and more. You can see all they offer on the city’s website https://www.cityofcocoabeach.com/Facilities/Facility/Details/Offenhauser-Recreation-Center-33
The Surfside Playhouse is also on Ramp Road. This local theater is a community theatre dedicated to the performing arts through productions, presentations, education, and outreach. They have an active calendar of events that seem to have something happening every month. See what is coming up at the Surfside Playhouse here http://www.surfsideplayers.com/
If you are living in Cocoa Beach, you probably want to go to the beach, right? From Minutemen Causeway south, at the end of most streets, there are beach crossovers for you to get your toes in the sand and hit the ocean! Since the Greenwood subdivision is right off 4th St South, this is your closest beach access. If you like to surf, you are in luck! 4th St has a good break; so if there are waves, you do not have to go far.
Another good thing to point out about 4th St south is this is the beginning of the dog-friendly beach in Cocoa Beach. Before 10 am and after 5pm, you are allowed to bring your dog to the beach. You still need to keep Fido on a leash (this is a dog beach, not a dog park). You need to pick up any poop (which you should be doing anywhere you walk your dog). You need to head south (go right) once you are on the beach since this is the North Border of where dogs are allowed. You can go as far south as 16th St South. If you lose track of what street you are walking towards, they do have signs on the beach letting you know when you are leaving (or entering) the dog-friendly stretch of beach in Cocoa Beach. The city has the official rules of the beach on their website https://www.cityofcocoabeach.com/192/Beach-Rules
