The Eau Gallie Causeway is one of three bridges that can take people from the mainland to the Brevard County beachside from the Melbourne, FL area. The causeway bridge itself is a large fixed bridge...so it never needs to rise to allow large boats to go under (in fact...all three Melbourne area bridges are fixed).
The 1.4 acre park and boat ramp on the southeast side of the bridge is capable of handling small craft boats and watercraft (you will often see folks on jet ski and with windsurfing gear as well).
The park and bridge is always loaded with fishermen and bikers, walkers, joggers and runners passing by on the sidewalk in front...so unless it is raining you will see a number of people using the Eau Gallie bridge amenities. The park has parking for 20 vehicles and boat trailers.
FYI...this is a great spot to watch the annual Christmas Boat Parade...if you do you will need to get here early...park at the Publix parking lot in Indian Harbour Beach and walk over.
