A clean, friendly park that caters to all kinds of interests. I took my bike--sometime I had to jockey with those walking, but loved it nonetheless. A great place for a picnic, mini-boat or tram rentals, ice cream, water park features--do take $1 per hour to park. Lee County has great parks--visit this one and try others, too!

I have lived her long enough to see Lakes Park built from the former rock pits that it was to a park that was devistated by Hurricane Charlie.

This park has something for everyone; little water parks for little guys, bike rentals/trails for the families, gardens for those who like to garden or just observe, ample parking for crowds, huge bar-b-q pits for parties, and refreshments for those who don't bring their own. It's easy to spend hours just relaxing or exploring.

Lakes Park is a great place to walk, run or bike without the headaches of dodging traffic. The park is centrally located and has a number of amenities for kids and adults.
Unfortunately, summertime is also mosquito time.

The park is currently inundated with the pests due to unusually abundant rainfall so mosquito repellent is an absolute must.
