This place is a lot of fun. Perfect for a walk or bike ride. Rentals are inexpensive. Ice cream and drinks on premises too. There are two great playgrounds at opposite ends of the park. The spray parks/splash pads are also awesome for the kids, though they close early at 6pm. My only complaint is that there are very few shady spots to relax. The lack of shade makes for a shorter visit.

We were "driven" to park and take a walk starting at the far right end of the park. The community gardens were our first encounter. It was interesting to see the variety of plants people were growing in small areas. As we continued to walk we learned of many of the beautiful trees and plants were the result of the large number of volunteers from the Lee County area. Many have devoted large amounts of time to enhance the park, especially after the destruction of Hurricane Charlie on 2004.
The park is very large and has much to offer everyone.

Fish, bicycle, jog, ride a train, the choices are endless. Pretty park. We attended a cancer fund raiser and it was a perfect place with some well needed shade
