Great if you have children as there are bikes to hire which can be ridden by one, two or four people. There are boats to rent for the lake and even a miniature train for a ride around the park. Excellent swing park for children and first rate ice cream shop/snack bar. Worth a visit if you don't want to... More

I have always liked Lakes Park because of the beautiful grounds and the water park. It is just the right size for family gatherings and safe enough to allow the children the freedom to run and play in the sun. There are covered shelters with grills throughout the entire park.

So much to do. Beautiful lake you can walk or bike around or kayak or paddleboat through. Wildlife galore: Have spotted alligators (in the lake) and turtles, and of course many Florida birds. There is a play area and a little beach. There are also events throughout the year, of course more during season. There is a farmers market as... More

I absolutely love this gem of a park right in Ft Myers. It is the perfect place to walk, run, or bike. and I went there nearly every day from February through April. Every day I saw something fun: alligators, turtles, fish, beautiful birds, families having cookouts or paddling boats, fishing, or riding rental bikes.

We love to come to this park to walk the beautiful paved trails that go for miles! No cars to worry about no crowds of people! There is a beautiful lake that is throughout the park with wildlife even alligators! You can rent kayaks or canoes and paddle around the lake. They have picnic areas and a hot food stand... More

This park has a little for everybody. From walking and biking paths, water craft rentals, a train museum and of course the ride on the train through the park, A MUST DO. The park also has great playground equipment for the kids.

I have passed Lakes Park for years and never realized what a delightful place it is. I finally ventured in.... The grounds are beautiful with a lake for paddle boats, surrey bikes to rent, a little train that is adorable, goes around the park and a playground for children. You can stroll around the path, bring your own bike and... More

Enjoyed the many varieties of Plants and flowers along the Pathways. Many of them are clearly identified. Park is clean, but pathways around the Lake get very dark at night, not many lights, bring a flashlight to make you feel safer. Many Rabbits and birds along the path. We didn't pay to park, I think that's ridiculous. I remember when... More
