On Market day, the parking in Lakes Park is Free. You may have to walk a bit, bring a cooler with wheels or cloth bags to make your hike easier. Enjoy

Two fantastic locations to rent bikes & boats at Ft. Myers’ favorite park – one at the Whistle Stop Ice Cream Shoppe (near the Train Ride), and the other by the beach near the main entrance. M-F 10am-4pm & Sat-Sun 10am-5pm
