Port St. John isn’t really a “port” per se – in fact the closest the community came to being a port is a small boat ramp located off Highway U.S. 1 – but it’s proximity to the Indian River and its central location make this growing community a perfect match for any family. Currently a part of Cocoa, the residents rejected a bid for incorporation in the 2002 elections.
More than 20,000 people reside in this community, which is located between Titusville and Cocoa between Highway U.S. 1 and Interstate 95. A community center off of Grissom Parkway offering meeting rooms, a game room and playground, provides a gathering place for locals of all ages.
Port St. John’s parks are also popular with area residents. Fay Lake Wilderness Park is a 192-acre site with walking access to a 27-acre fishing lake. Fay Park, an 11-acre site, features picnic shelters, a playground, basketball court, two lighted tennis courts and two lighted 4-wall racquetball courts. The park serves young ballplayers with four little league fields, including a senior and T-ball field.
