Some nice winding trails, beautiful tall pine trees, butterfly garden, nature centre and boardwalk with gorgeous views of Lemon Bay are some of the highlights of Lemon Bay Park. Volunteers like Jack who we met at the nature centre was happy to answer our questions about wildlife in the park and he can recommend other conservation areas and state parks to visit in the area. We are living in Englewood for the winter months and will be visiting this park on a weekly basis. I highly recommend visiting this park if you are ever in the Englewood area.

This is a beautiful trail that is 75% shaded. It equals about 3 miles. Bikes are not allowed and park volunteers will remind you of that rule. Part of the trail has a boardwalk over the water. Parts of the trails are mulch and some are grass. Plenty of parking and a visitor center with restrooms.

Love this Park! Great place to relax. Many walking trails. Beautiful Nature. Kayak/Canoe launch. Picnic Areas. Many Benches places throughout walking trails if need to
Sit and just take in the fresh air. There is a north side and a south side both offer different experience. A welcome/environmental center in between. Offer restrooms. As well as pet water fountains. Definitely pet friendly place

I am not sure why everyone thinks this is a great park. The kayak launch is limited, while parking is ample, there really is no beach here and the famed water walkway is nice but very short and hiking is limited also unless you really want to go far away from the actual parking area. The water is murky and smelled in parts of algae. So, after the short waterside walk, little else to do.

My husband and I walked both the South and North trails. It was a cool day - which was nice since there is a few spots of shade but mostly a sunny walk. Combined the main trails are about 2.9 miles. The trails are easy to walk - mostly sand or dirt with an occasional boardwalk. I appreciated the benches which were numerous along the way. There were bathrooms in the building by the parking lot. Nice spot.

No restrooms, small parking lot but we were the only car there on a weekday morning in May. We saw one person on our 45 minute walk.
Easy walking, some shade, mostly hard packed sand and sparse grass. Doable with a stroller if you navigate over a few small tree roots. Take a map because there is a whole network of trails cross-crossing throughout the park.
The “rivers” on the map are not much more than ditches with running water.

Nice place for a low-key nature walk.

My husband and visited this park twice during our stay in the area. The trails are fun to walk. We even found a gopher turtle. The park is a dedicated eagle nesting area but we didn't see any when we were there. We did see shorebirds along the water. The trees and fauna are so different from our state of Michigan. Most of it is shady but will get hot when the temperature goes up. Restrooms are available. Parking area adequate.

We had some time to kill after checking out of our condo on Siesta Key and before catching our flight from Fort Myers. We stopped here to stretch our legs on a little walk. There wasn't really anything to see, but it was a nice little walk.

We went to Englewood beach for the day. We started walking and found this amazing hidden place. It has a wide sand beach, the waves are pretty decent and there is plenty of space to walk and rest. There is an area where people park their boats on the canal and go to the beach. It is a really nice place to take pictures. It is also dog friendly.

Why doesn't the county invest some money and put a fishing pier in some of the parks in Englewood? There is really no good place to fish around here unless you have a boat, for a little town this close to the Bay you would think there would be a fishing pier or two for us to use, God knows I pay enough tax for one.
