Lettuce Lake Park opened in 1982 and quickly became a hub of activities. The 240-acre site offers something for everyone. Wooded picnic areas and a playground are family favorites. A 1.25 mile bicycle path/jogging trail, complete with a fitness course, meander through the park. Lettuce Lake is also a haven to study nature. An interpretive center, featuring exhibits, leads to a 3,500-foot boardwalk and an observation tower where visitors can view an extensive variety of wildlife. Canoes and kayaks are available for rent to visitors to experience a wholenew side of the Park.

Lettuce Lake Park has a beautiful boardwalk over water, mangroves, and different native flora. The tower overlooking the HIllsborough River is a must during your visit.

Theres a small fee to get in ($2?) but its a very well maintained park. Theres a paved trail with various work out stations and plenty of water fountains, with a fountain for dogs as well.

boardwalk on the river with the observation tower was a splendid way to idle away the morning--plenty of places to sit and rest, bring water :)

This is a nice place for a walk and a picnic. Nothing to exciting but nice to see a little bit of nature. My daughter saw the biggest spider she has ever seen on a class field trip here and now every time we drive by this place she refers to it as the spider place.

A gem of a park near the USF campus, offers walking trails, photo ops, kayak and canoe launches, picnic grounds and lots more. Walk, bike or boat through this lovely park setting.

Great park! The canoe trip was a lot of fun and a great chance to see wildlife up close...but not too close to the gators ;)

It's an amazing place for nature lovers. It's located in the outskirts of the city, close to highways and interstates. Very peaceful and well preserved environment.
