We go there regularly, with and without our grandkids. Narrow gage (about 12"!) railroad--you sit on the cars motorcycle style, and take an interesting 15-minute ride. You can rent paddle boats or surrey bikes, or just hike around and enjoy the grounds and the water. If you drive int to the main entrance off Gladiolis Blvd you'll pay a parking... More

Great park to go bicycling. I usually go there 4-5 times a week. There are bicycle and paddle boat rentals. Great place for family picnics and church or reunion functions. Terrain is flat so it's great for all ages! A definite must!

Enjoy riding bicycles and the survey cars through the park. Have not tried the paddle boats or kayaks but it's on my list for future visits. The train is great for the kids and adults as well.

The park is conveniently located in the center of Ft. Myers. It's perfect for a Jog around the lakes, Kayak on the river or grab an IceCream with family and friends. Has a great seasonal Renaissance Fair in Jan/Feb that is a great attraction. Park hours are according to sunrise/sunset.

Lee County Park. There is lots to do at Lakes Park. There are 2 water areas, multiple playgrounds (all different), rent-able pavilions, and festivals that vary throughout the year. Great Farmer's market on Fridays during season (July-April- dates varies) They also have a concessionaire for bike rentals, boats, food etc. Minimal payment due at parking area.
