“A scenic and fun place to spend some time”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is a beautiful park that offers a lot of things to do. The hiking and bike trails are well-maintained and offer a nice change of scenery from lake views to wooded areas to a botanical garden. Paddle boats are available for rent and there are playgrounds (including two water ones) for the kids. This is also a great bird-watching area, especially early in the morning or near dusk.

“very nice for children”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Lakes Park is a great place to take your children. They have large play area and a mini water area for the kids to splash around in. I did see a huge alligator in the lake and at some places there is no fence so I wouldn't go by the lake itself

“Did not look dog friendly, pay for parking”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I didn't actually get out of the car but drove around the park. You have to pay for parking, and on the memorial day weekend it was very busy and I didn't see any dogs so thought it would be best to go somewhere else.

There are several parking lots which seem to be nice and well labeled so you can park near the area you are interested in. There is a small beach, kids splash park, etc.

Very busy park, looks very well maintained

“A Gem”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Enjoyed the miniature train ride for the entire family and the bycle bicycles built for 2-4. One of the best county parks in southwest Florida for kids.
