The miniature train ride is great fun for all ages. It only goes 5mph or so, but there are lots of 'towns' to see along the way. We rented a kayak and paddled the lake for an hour. Super convenient. Ice cream and other nibblin's are available from 2 stands on opposite ends of the park. Well worth the $5/all... More

I've been coming to this park since I was a kid. It's a great place to go and has plenty of room for just about anything you want. Parking price is pretty cheap; you pay and one of the parking machines and place the ticket on your dashboard. You can rent a bike, a paddle boat or a regular boat.... More

What a great park and something happening here all the time. We love the Farmer's Market and all the events and always watch for what's next. Even without the events, it's a fantastic place to hang out and enjoy our beautiful Florida days.

If you want a gorgeous view and a safe relaxing place to get a little exercise this is for you. We rented a bike for 4 and pedalled around this lovely area. It is a perfect place for little ones. One of the great things about it, entrance to the park is FREE! The perfect spot for birding and gorgeous... More

This park has so much to offer--biking and walking paths. For children there is a train ride, a couple of well kept playgrounds and a water playground. Bikes and boats are available for rent. There is an ice cream store which is a nice place for a break. This is a great place to bring visitors or to just get... More

Things to do for kids. In the mood for picnic, this is a great spot. If you like birding or wildlife, you'll want to take a stroll here for sure. A local favorite. Free. Bikes for rent but the park is a bit too small for adults to bike unless you incorporate regional biking trails on your ride.

I've been coming here since I was in preschool. This place is super nostalgic to me. I love the little train. It's beautiful. Staff is always friendly. Only thing that makes me sad is seeing the condos now.

Have never been to Lakes Park before but went with grandchildren for their Halloween exhibit and playground. What an exceptional park with great activities for the kids. They did an outstanding job and now looking forward to their Christmas holiday theme activities.
