Description: Lettuce Lake Park opened in 1982 and quickly became a hub of activities...
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.

Went with my husband to this park to take a stroll on the trail and even though it was cloudy and a little rainy we got to see lots of wildlife. We saw 2 young gators, turtles, lots of different birds, beautiful butterflies, a huge wasps nest, a snake (water moccasin), grasshoppers and a baby gator. There are so many... More

One of the hidden gems of the Florida State Park system. Located just off I-75 North of Tampa. Very well-maintained. First park we've ever visited with ZERO trash on the grounds and trail areas. Large boardwalk is there which meanders through the primordial swamps. If you love birds, alligators, snakes, spiders, and other neat creatures (at safe distances), you will... More

Lettuce lake is a great park, plenty of open space and some incredible trails that take you over top of some wonderful examples of old Florida environments. If you're in the area this is a must visit.

They have a great park and a little museum. There is a great wooden walkway over Hillsboriugh river edge. We have seen snakes, alligators tortoises and fish. Fun outdoor place for families. There are picnic sites and leashed pets are welcome

There is a nice paved 1.25 mile trail that can be used for walking, running, and biking. Kids will love the open areas to play and the play set they have centrally located in the park. The absolute highlight is the boardwalk though... It leads to an observation tower where you can get amazing photos of the Hillsborough River.

We spent an afternoon here and loved it! Including my two kids who are 11 and 12 years old and they are sometimes tough to please when it comes to being outside in the Florida summer when it's hot and humid lol. We will definitely be going back. We seen several alligators, turtles, lots of birds and an owl. If... More
