Overview

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.

We love to wander the boardwalks in the this scenic park. It is so peaceful and beautiful, you wouldn't believe how close you are to the city. We've always spotted at least one alligator on our visits.

Beautiful, well laid-out park. We saw some alligators, which was our goal. Glad we took the time to check it out.

Need a fix of nature and a place to take a quiet stroll, visit Lettuce Lake Park. The boardwalk gives excellent views of the wildlife along the river. Also a great place to walk your dog.

Beautiful trails and walks through the woods - very relaxing. The boats were not being rented due to potential storms coming in the afternoon. I would advise going early in the morning if you intend to rent a boat. That would have been worth it.

It is dog friendly , however; only in spots. Dogs are not to be on the boardwalk unless it is a service dog.
