At least 400 acres of wild life and lakes. And it's free. Kids love it and adults like to bike through it. It is maintained by the county as a place for local residents to get away.

They have farmers markets on Fridays, water attractions for kids to cool off, beautiful gardens and exhibits with Master Gardeners to answer questions. And a fenced area where residents can grow their own veggies, herbs, flowers. Pavilions for picnicking, bikes to rent, and lots more.

Need a rest from the beach and all that shopping? Stop by Lakes Park and rent a canoe, or use the bike trail to bike, walk, or rollerblade.. Sponsor different activities throughout the year.

The park itself is just great. Many interesting signs to read and fun things to do. Love the bike rental. But, one of the best things is the Friday farmer's market. It is one of the best I have ever attended. Many things to buy that aren't "food". There is even a vendor who brings his own wood burning oven... More

There is so much to do in this very large park. Our seven year old grandson loves the playground and the climbing train. There's a place to buy snacks. We have rented the paddle boats and enjoyed the wonderful wildlife around the lake. The train ride is fun for a few dollars admission. We go there often.

Lakes Park is full of wildlife. I've even seen an alligator! The park has wonderful trails for walking or biking, a botanical garden, children's play area (including water park for kids) mini train rides, bikes and boats to rent, ice cream and food to purchase and it is free to get into the park. There is a small parking fee.

Loved that this park had a lot of different attractions for kids of all ages. The outdoor play area, the train ride, the lake, and the water area were great! Looking forward to doing the bike rides and paddle boats when the kids are older. Happened to be there during Farmer's Market and were very happy to see that!

Rent bikes and enjoy the park, then cool off in "water" playground- nice break from the beaches! We enjoyed this park for just about 2 hours but could have easily spent another 2-3, next time we will rent the paddle boats. Fun for families with young children!

Cannot believe it took 6 months for us to stop here-- we'd passed so many times. Fabulous options for families, individuals and couples... picnic areas, food, cycling paths, trails to walk, boat/bike rentals of all sorts... water areas plus the lovely lake setting and lots of shady areas too! Highly recommend. Have been back already, and will make it a... More
