BREVARD COUNTY • PORT ST. JOHN, FLORIDA – The Port St. John Boat Ramp located at 6650 North Cocoa Boulevard will reopen on Wednesday, May 8.
Completion of the ramp marks the 11th of 20 hurricane-related park repairs/rebuilds underway as part of a $12 million hurricane recovery effort by Brevard County.

According to Brevard County officials, the repairs cost $750,000 since they began in April 2018.
The facilities at the Port St John boat ramp features two lanes and courtesy docks and sits on 1.17 acres along the Indian River in Port St. John.
Fishing on the shoreline along with wildlife viewing are two main activities at this location.
In addition to the ramp, there is ADA parking and a parking lot which can accommodate 30 vehicles with trailers.
The ramp is open 24/7 and the rest of the park is open from 7 a.m. until dark.
