Great place to walk, picnic and spend the day

Nicely laid out park with lots of paths for walking or biking. Water park areas for kids. Birding is great. Picnic spots and clean bathrooms.

We had heard about this park and it was worth the visit. Lots to do, all though we were there in 40 degree temps so a lot of things were closed. There are bike rentals and pedal boat rentals, plenty of trails to hike, fishing, play ground and even a train. Ice cream shop right on property. Even though it... More

Had a wonderful time with my grand children at Lakes Regional Park. The botanical garden, which was not in bloom, was still an enjoyable walk. Slow pace activity. Family enjoyed the train ride, but be aware, babies under the age of 1 are not allowed to ride. This did not create a problem since we had enough adults to go... More

This park has something for everyone. The walking trails and birding opportunities are fantastic and on Wednesdays there is a farmers market from 9am to 1pm. The playground provides a waterpark for the little ones.

this park has it...it's no grant park but it's the best park fort Myers has to offer. It's clean, full of parking, and a lot of options for stuff to do. If you want to relax in a little paddle boat along their lake or cruise along in a 4 seater bike on a lazy Sunday than hit this park... More

I have loved Lakes Park since my kids were little ( almost 30 years ago) . It's a great place for families - a wonderful lake for swimming in the Summer, playground areas, botanical gardens, farmer's market on select days of the week. Highly recommended for families with children, or just someone wanting to find a quiet place to set... More

Our 3 year old grandson LOVED the little train ride. He wanted to go back and ride it everyday!! This is a lovely park with so much to do for all ages. A treat to ice cream is a great way to end a fun day at the park. We'll be back to enjoy this little gem in Lee county!... More

Water features, rides, and just plain old beautiful parkland awaits the family that visits Lakes Regional Park. I checked this place out for my grandchildren that are coming down to Fort Myers, Florida from New York. I know they will absolutely love this park. Nice restaurants are close by if cooking out is not your thing. All free.

We are lucky enough to have a place within walking distance of this park, but even those who don't can park (costs a few dollars an hour) and then explore the park. There's something for everyone here. A train (which is themed around holidays) for youngers, bike or boat rentals, and tons of walking trails. The star of the walking... More
