I absolutely love visiting Lettuce Lake Park when I come to north Tampa. The park is clean and I feel safe even when I came here by myself. Great jogging trails with exercise areas along the way. Great board walk over the swamp to let you get up and close to the alligators. Next time I plan to rent a kayak and paddle around. The volunteers at the Nature Center were very informative and friendly. Lots of picnic areas and tables. You can spend an entire day here just enjoying nature. All this for only $2. You can't beat it.
