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.

So relaxing and pleasant to do together with friends or family. Aside of birdwatching there is plenty to enjoy while on the boardwalks. Take with you your camera and for a pure relax try to get here around 4 pm till the closing time. Have fun

Great natural view of the Upper Hillsborough River area. Bring your kayak or canoe to truly see all the sights along the river.

Visited with my aunts that are from Arizona and Utah. Walked around for about 2 hours and saw a small alligator and a black snake. Very pretty views.

If you are in the Tampa area you have to stop by here and walk on the board walk and up the tower. The board walk is very relaxing and beautiful! Highly recommend stopping by here if you have a little bit of time to kill.
