Owner description: 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.

“Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

For only $2 per person, you enter a world of serenity! We lost count of the birds, gators and squirrels! It was a very hit and sunny day, but the trees provided the best "air conditioning!"
We were disappointed the tower is closed indefinitely. Charge more to get it repaired!

“Park”

I always love going to this park. I love the trails and the wildfire is so wonderful here. The park is very clean and well kept for. No matter how many times I go it never gets old.

“Wonderful place to go to relax and see nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

oh my I loved this place. Nicely shaded , great boardwalk. Lots of nature , lots of birds, and gators. Really loved it. Must take your family for a long walk and you can even take the dog, along one walk way but not on the board walk

well worth going for a day of nature watching.
