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

We have been here several times for our Challenger baseball. Big park with ample parking. No dogs allowed so make sure you don’t bring them 😞. Great place for kids to run around and let off some energy

This isn't a public park. It's a "commercial park" with no free parking spots, and the paid parking is at every hour and on every day -- yes, even weekends. Then, when it's closed, large metal gates close it off as if it were a...More

Just love visiting this park. Lovely lake to walk around, lots of places to sit and eat, including barbecue places. Lots of little areas for children to play. It’s such a shame that so many of the trees have been lost since hurricane Irma but...More

You do have to pay for parking, I don’t know the price as I always drove a wheelchair van and they park for free.
