We are from Pittsburgh, PA, and visit Fort Myers yearly. I can't wait to see it next year when the construction is complete. We are a couple on a vacation and this is a perfect place for a leisurely walk when some shade is needed.

Took our 3 year old here for a day. She loved the playgrounds and the train ride. It was too cold for the splash pad bit the bile rental was a lot of fun. Going back every visit for sure.

Nice big park with a lot of good biking trails. What made it nicer was that we went during the farmers market so we got fresh veggies, free parking and a good bike ride in.

We’ve been to Lakes Park several times and it is always a great place for relaxing and getting a bit of exercise if you want it. We go with friends and often rent a four person bike to go around the paths. It’s never crowded....More
