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.

A lovely day in a lovely pard.

Blessed with beautiful weather, the park is a lovely sylvan site. The paths wend around the lake and river where old foundations of the bridge can still be found.

Enjoyable experience for entire family. Terrific boardwalk to observe residents of this marshland... great variety of birds and you will see a gator or two. Observation Tower easily climbed and fun! Gators were lurking in the sunny shallow water covered in little green plants. We saw three young gators in total. $2 entry per car (allowed up to 8 people).... More

The board walk trails provide a good view of the swamp and ox bow lake in the park. Lots of wild life can be seen from the elevated walkway and observation tower.

We had a birthday party in one of the pavilions and it was great. Right next to the playground. Make sure you reserve the pavilions in advance.

My husband and i were looking for a way to pass the time after dropping the kids off at Busch Gardens. We thought we would spend a few minutes at this park but ended up there for hours! The boardwalk area is great for spotting wildlife and taking photos. You can rent a canoe from the person at the gate... More

This is one of the best parks in Central Florida. I bring my dogs to walk here almost every weekend. They have a nice playground for kids & you can have birthday parties here. I highly recommend.

We walked the Boardwalk - they were out of maps which is my only gripe and we weren't sure which route to take. The... More
