Trip Advisor lists this as one of the Top 10 parks to take your pet in Florida…there is a problem… The Lakes does NOT allow pets to visit. My Yorkies were very disappointed.

Lovely family friendly and safe park.
The rental bike was old and didn't work well ($20). The electric boat didn't work well and was not as described.
($40). The guy admitted it didn't work well but charged us full price. I recommend the park. I dont recommend renting any equipment.

One of the Gems of Fort Myers

Since moving to Fort Myers two years ago, my family has loved visiting Lakes Park, walking around, playing on the splash pad and playground, having picnics here, and just today we discovered the community garden and the train rides and museum. What a wonderful place and an essential place to go for anyone, whether visiting or a resident

Lovely Lakes Regional Park Fort Myers
May 2021 • Solo
Very lovely, well-maintained, and huge park! It is just simply so nice to see dedicated parks in the Fort Myers area rather than housing developments! Someone mentioned a butterfly garden, but I did not come across it. There is a large variety of gorgeous flowers in full bloom this time of year! The boardwalk and various walking trails are great for walking, jogging, bike rentals, and photography! A dollar an hour to park, which is reasonable and worth it!

Beautiful park with trails to walk, or ride around in.
Mar 2021
This park is lovely. It has little bridges to walk or ride bikes over, a train ride for children to enjoy, splash pads, rental bikes. Flower gardens around to enjoy. On Wednesdays from Oct- April The farmers market is open and very, very busy. There are different events during the years prior to the Covid interrupting things. The lake is fun to watch to see if there might be alligators swimming around. There are always birds to see. Picnic areas are available. There is a fee for parking except for the time of the Farmers Market which we go to nearly weekly.

Play, sight see, exercise, Lake Park has it all.
May 2020
Walking trails, short or long, children activities, plenty of feathered friends. And maybe even a alligator or two.
What more an you ask for?
Sit and read by the lake as the birds swim, fly or sit near you. Walk the maintained patches through what seems like a large forest. Travel through the park on the mini railroad. Kids will love the bounce house, the butterfly house. Bring their bathing suits and lit them cool off under the sprinklers especially built for them.
Next rent a bike, or tandem bike, or carriage and pedal away.

Beautiful spot to visit and relax
Mar 2021
We love the path around the lake, the views of the fountains in the water, and the many birds that call this home. It's fun to take a pedal bike around the path, and there are so many great photo ops there. We love to visit.

Super cool park called the Lakes Regional Park, in the middle of, well, everything...

A bit crowded, and parking is either $1.00 per hour or $5.00 for the day. 158 acres of man-made freshwater lakes formed by a rock mine that operated on the property in the 1960s. A variety of wildlife can be spotted throughout Lakes Park, especially birds. Spotted a Red-winged blackbird and an alligator! The park includes about 2 1/2 miles of walking and biking trails running along the lakes. The train was not in operation due to the pandemic. Plenty of park benches and picnic tables. Icecream sold on site along with light snacks and drinks. Various outdoor rentals available including kayaks. Fishing allowed in some spots. NOT PUP FRIENDLY 😢
