  • Beautiful park. 2 playgrounds for varying ages. 2 splash pads as well. We took the complimentary golf cart tour and it was a great way to see the entire park. The guide was informative and sweet! Parking was $1/hour or $5 for the whole day. You can rent bikes, paddle boats, and bike cart things that hold 2-6+ people.
  • Best park in Florida on the west coast. So much fun to be with the family. Playground is Awesome for the children. Green house was very nice to walk through. Fans cooled us off while exploring the plants. We enjoyed ice cream and a hot dog , while watching birds and the biggest turtle I have ever seen in the water. Then headed off to the water park, where kids play inside gated area of water shooting up from the ground. No pool. Plus it's all free. Train ride for kids also. Thank you Lakes Park for all my memories with grandkids. ♡♡♡
