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.

“Lettuce lake park”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This is pretty nice as far as local parks go. It has boardwalks, a jogging/walking trail (or slow bike riding), a playground, and picnic areas.

“Peaceful and lots of gators and birds”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

The boardwalk was very enjoyable. We saw several small alligators and birds. We also saw the 11 ft alligator. Helpful park rangers.

“Picturesque Nature Trail”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

This park is nestled in the bustling USF area, but once in the park, you feel as though you have stepped into the mid-Florida wilderness. Definitely worth visiting.
