Playground, sand volleyball courts, ice cream, short trail for walking/jogging/biking. A train ride for the little ones. Small fee for parking. Look up the park on the web at Lee Parks and Recreation site for all the info.

Been here many times. Love to walk on the trails and through the gardens. Lots of nature to observe and staff keeps park clean. Walked 5k to benefit CLHS Band and was a wonderful event. Close to home, but feels far away.

Outside vendors for bikes, boat rental and food are great. Park staff (if u can find one) however, not great at their jobs. None ever know what is going there.

This is one part that has it all. Has a beautiful asphalt walking path that goes around the lake and through the gardens. There are many volunteers that work the gardens and volunteer their time maintaining the beauty. They are always happy to tell you about different plants and the work that they're going to be doing in the future.... More

This park is - awesome. Our little one loves the water attractions and the playground area. I love that it is clean and well kept. I cannot believe it is free! There are bathrooms and changing areas and picnick tables to eat. There is a shaded area for the parents while the kids play. You can also BBQ.

We enjoy the quiet walk through the park. We spot a gator now & then. Nice gardens also. Also farmers market there is very large, think it is only seasonal.
