We had several visits to the park. the Friday farmers market is SUPER!! The boardwalk is great for seeing turtles and waterfowl We had a super time renting a four-person surrey. Great way of seeing a lot on the grounds. The water stations seemed inviting but we did not venture.

Stayed at a Condo overlooking the park. Walked or biked early every morning and I still am not sure I covered it all. Great options at the Farmers Market on Friday mornings. Missed the grandkids, they would have had a blast there. Train ride, splash zone, and a couple great playgrounds.

We love the walking/biking trails, the kayak rentals, the native birds, the family-friendly setting....something for everyone.

We stopped here with a large family group. We were turned onto this place by family and we weren't disappointed. There is plenty of things to do including a train ride, boat rentals, bike rentals, water park and walking paths. We spent a couple of hours here. Be prepared to spend some money for some of the extras. It is... More

An easy going park with about an hours worth of level and moslty paved bike trails winding throughout the facility. Rental pedal cars can cause some traffic jams on the paved trails. Some shady areas, some sun. go early and watch the birds who roost there over night begin their departure for their day.

Biking/jogging paths are very nice and well traveled. Go early. They offer rentals. The lake is not open to swim anymore. Lots of areas for picnics and BBQ. There is also a small water park for children. Lots of wildlife and fishing.

Lakes Park in Fort Myers is a great place for kids. We took our grandsons and they had fun on the train, "beach", the boardwalk, and especially in the water (shower) parts. We also went with a club for a picnic and had a great pavilion with a grill and fireplace (which we didn't use as it was warm). On... More

Lakes park has many great places to go with the kids. They have two splash pads (though only one was working when we were there) two different playgrounds, a walking/jogging path, bike/kayak rentals and a concessions stand. My kids loved it and had a lot of fun! I would recommend it as a great FREE alternative to the beach!

We stopped here for lunch on our way through Fort Myers and glad we did. Great park with loads to do and free water playgrounds. Superb farmers market on Friday mornings that was just packing up when we arrived at 1pm but still managed to get some homemade honey, lemonade and a wonderful French deli. Only minus, needs a little... More

We visited this park last year with our 5 & 8 year old kids. We all had a great time. The kiddie train ride is a lot of fun. We rented bicycles and rode around the paved trail and finished with some ice cream cones. The playgrounds are clean and fun, too! We will visit again next time we are... More
