Lake Ashby Park
Discover the beauty, simplicity, and natural charm of Lake Ashby Park, a 64+ acre, waterfront park located at 4150 Boy Scout Camp Road, in New Smyrna Beach.

A volleyball court and clean bathrooms are also a bonus!
From the moment you step out of your vehicle, Lake Ashby Park will start working its magic. Open daily from sunrise to sunset, a journey through this uncongested natural beauty won’t disappoint.
