Kissimmee Lakefront Park Questions & Answers

I see a lot of pictures of alligators. Is there a separation or a barrier between where you can walk and where they are?

The question you should have asked is how many gator attacks against people have been reported at the lake, that would give you an idea of how safe it is. My estimation from experience is zero for the number of attacks that occurred out of the lake's water line.

Yes i seen them at lakefront park in the lake but they have a wall around the lake and i never seen them walking around in the park.i live near this park for almost 2 years and go here and i would say it is safe to walk around the park and for children to play here.

I have been to this park many times I actually lived in Florida for 12 years before moving I have never even seen a Gator why at this park I have always felt very safe with taking my 5 boys and the now I use too have a lot of gators in the back of my house but even with them being almost in my back yard they stay away unless people start feeding then general rule don't feed them don't both them and they won't bother you

I have been to the lake during different times of day and night, during different seasons, and have never come across a gator near or on the pedestrian areas. I've taken my dog, my child, and never an issue. Gators do become friendly when people start feeding them, because they will start to associate us with food...DON'T feed the gators.

We've only seen the gators in the water. I'm happy about that.

We have never seen any out of the lake, although I did hear one during our visit in June when the sound seemed to be coming from the brush near the marina.

The gators are in the Lake but easily seen from the raised pathway there is no barrier between you and the Lake ,wildlife as it should be .

Great questions. The gators are plentiful however, they are in the lake. The city built a small wall barrier so there is some points where they can come up on the barrier but its safe. It's Florida...gators are everywhere. Do not feed them.
