Lighthouse Point Park is at the southern tip of Ponce Inlet. The natural beauty of the undisturbed land has been preserved for all to enjoy. Dolphins frequent the shoreline, gopher tortoises can be found in sandy areas, and other wildlife (including raccoons, possums, skunks, armadillos, shore birds and birds of prey) can be observed. Lighthouse Point Park is one of the few County parks where man’s best friend may enjoy the amenities. However, pets must be leashed at all times.
The 52-acre park features fishing, nature trails, an observation deck and tower, swimming and pavilions.
