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.

The boardwalk was nice and we saw some beautiful sites. No alligator sightings, but lots of butterflies and beautiful mossy trees. Deducted a star because part of the end of the boardwalk was underwater and inaccessible, but I saw no information about that being the case so we just stumbled upon it. It's a 2 dollar cash only entry fee (we had to turn around and go to the atm because we hardly every have cash). There's a playground, places to rent kayaks, picnic areas, and a lot different trails.

Had some free time before heading to the airport. $2 per car is well worth the stop. Don't rush take your time and look. You will be surprised at what you see. Only negative is the occasional plastoc bottle or aluminum can. Wish people would have more respect. A good. Way to relax and enjoy nature for an hour or two.

Was staying in hotel just down the street and was looking for a good place to run. Discovered Lettuce Lake Park - had to pay the $2 fee to enter and park, but they have a really nice paved walking/jogging trail that is 1.25 miles long and almost entirely in the shade (which was a blessing on a July day in Tampa!). There is also a dirt nature trail that you can run on. The boardwalk has signs indicating jogging is not allowed. I did take a quick stroll on the boardwalk and climbed the little tower to get a good view of the water. Saw some cool wildlife including a little alligator. Neat little find for a nice quick run!
