  • Rented a bike and enjoyed the trails. A great place to explore the special garden, trails, kayaks and market on Wednesdays. 
  • Great place for a walk, bicycling or any outdoor activity. Lots of wildlife and birds to see. Great place for picnics and kids to play on a really nice playground.

  • If you're a Pokemon Go player - this is the place to be! So many stops and gyms here all in one place. And if you don't play, there is A LOT to do here! There are walking trails, bike paths, canoe/kayaking, plethora of water fountains, and a lot of gazebos and benches to rest. There is a small fee to park, but you can do hourly or all day. It's worth it.
  • We've been going to Lakes Park for years and have always enjoyed it. Christmas or Halloween train rides are always fun. Now there's a children's water park. Bike rentals, paddle boats, fishing and more. Lots of family fun!
  • Great fun for the family. The playgrounds are amazing. The pavilions are great for parties. You have to check out the train ride. The train ride is a adventure through so many little towns and tunnels. much fun with the family and not breaking the bank. The fall festival is great for pumpkin picking with the fanily
  • As me and some friends were blogging about how beautiful this park is. And how we really recommend it to all of our friends, while riding on our Ninebots, we were told it was not allowed in the park. Unbelievable how they throw us out because of some old lady thinking it wasn't good to ride in the park. Will definitely not recommend the place ever again. Not even visiting. HORRIBLE!! ITS 2016 people!!!
  • LRP is seriously one of the hidden delights of Fort Myers. Many townies don't know about this park. It's free. Nice scenery. Well-maintained. Lots of space if you're bringing kids. Long trails for jogging/biking. Alligators to look at. Amazing!
