Owner description: Lettuce Lake Park opened in 1982 and quickly became a hub of activities. The 240-acre site offers something for everyone. Wooded picnic areas and a playground are family favorites. A 1.25 mile bicycle path/jogging trail, complete with a fitness course, meander through the park. Lettuce Lake is also a haven to study nature. An interpretive center, featuring exhibits, leads to a 3,500-foot boardwalk and an observation tower where visitors can view an extensive variety of wildlife. Canoes and kayaks are available for rent to visitors to experience a wholenew side of the Park.

“Great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were in the area for a business trip and wanted to find some affordable things to do with our family of 4. For $2 per car this was an awesome trip! The boardwalk there was great. We saw birds, turtles, spiders, and alligators. We took 2 hours to do it and my kids loved it! This is definitely worth the time to go to!

“Nature! Nature! Nature! And a few gators!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Its a fun and relaxing way to spend the day at the park! Pack a picnic and enjoy the park picnic benches, wander around the paved, marked, wooded and natural walkways. Visit the gators, they'll be looking for you before you spot them. Watch the birds fly overhead, enjoy the shady trees and then feel the sun peek out and dance across the water. Guides are around for questions, restroom are frequent and parking has a fee but is quite reasonable.

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Decent place for a stroll or picnic with family, but not a lot of things happening. No directions at all, though only for 2 dollar per car it is a good place to relax and just roam around.
