Another public beach is Humiston Park, in Vero's Central Beach Business District. Humiston is a guarded beach. It has a playground and boardwalk.

Jaycee Park is adjacent to Conn Beach which is guarded and has a boardwalk extending southward approximately 2/3 of a mile along Ocean Drive. Jaycee Park has about fifteen pavilions, all with barbecues. It has a small playground and a long boardwalk.

The unguarded beach between Conn and Humiston is frequently used by skim boarders, fishermen, and occasionally by surf boarders although the surf is rarely high enough for extensive surfing.
