Attraction details
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.

“New Playground”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Lake Park is a nice North Tampa park accessible 7 days a week for a $2.00 vehicle fee. The play ground is currently closed but set to reopen in June. They are currently installing a BRAND NEW play set and it looks to have lots of new and improved equipment. You can rent canoes from the Ranger for a $20.00 fee. If you have children into BMX bikes they have a really cool BMX race track.

Nice boardwalks and views of the Hillsborough River, picnic areas and a great grassy sprawl to lay on a blanket and have a picnic!

“Nice Park”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

Nice park for walking and biking. Bike trails and boardwalk available. Scenery can be a little spotty depending on the season and water levels. Overall a nice way to spend an afternoon outdoors.
