This is a "family friendly" park, which essentially equates to the whole area being restricted to a very narrow subset of mediocre activities that you are allowed to engage in, as is exemplified by the plethora of restricted access gates lining the road, as well as the massive traffic information LED greeting you with a warning to lock your doors. There are incredibly few nature trails, and those that do exist disintegrate before they reach a mile long, as they recombine with the main paved path, which itself is a paltry 1 1/4 miles long. There are constantly school busses teaming with children arriving, and while they have as much of a right to be there as I do, it would be a lie to say that I appreciated their presence. Ultimately the area is just a tiny, unimpressive park without any real clout to compete with the far superior competition in any given direction. With nothing to do, the same demographics as any park with similar credentials and the omnipresent buzz of traffic, this is a holistically unenjoyable, unlaudable park,

Great Boardwalk Trail with abundant wildlife. Took my seven and a four-year-old on the walk which they completed with ease and loved every second.

Simple nature trail with plenty to see. Boardwalk portions allows for some good sights. Always good when you just wanna get away from the city for a little.

This is a stone throw away from my work and home. Go there often. Great play area for kids. Well maintained. Their visitor center is awesome and they have classes on the weekends teaching wildlife to kids. Always see wildlife when I walk the trail or Boardwalk. This is a go to place for me. If they family doesn't have anything to do, it's time to go to the park.

Walked this park trail today. Amazingly well maintained on both the wood over-water trails and the paved trail. In total, my wife and I did about 3 1/4 miles.Lots of Ibis, herons, anhinga seen with a couple of pretty noisy limpkins somewhere out of site. We saw two adolescent alligators warming themselves in the afternoon sun. The trails are flat and can be handled by someone with walking difficulties. (I walk with crutches, even though I enjoy pushing myself through some very rugged trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park). The boardwalk areas can be handled in a wheelchair, whether motorized or manually powered. Being the weekend with beautiful weather, the pathways were busy, but not so much as to distract from the natural beauty. If it weren't for background highway noise, you would not know you are in the city.

Beautiful park! Extremely easy, beautiful views, wild life, and the weather was perfect. January 18th, perfect temp, no bugs, and pleasant places to have a picnic. Clean bathrooms.

Beautiful and off the beaten path for someone that just wants to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of Florida and the city! Loved the walk and the nature that could be found around here!

Lettuce Lake is a small city park with a paved road through it and some dirt trails. It's busy, of course. There are some nice views of the rivers and the cypresses. There is some open space and picnic shelters. Recently, Florida parks have started charging money or more money to go to their parks and they post cashiers at the entrance to make sure you pay.

The descriptiion says 2.1 mile trail but the GPS on my bike app told me 1.3 miles. Other than that this is a great trail! There is a $2.00 entry fee for the park but it sooo worth it. The trail is paved with plenty of benches, tree coverage, and sights to see. There are two water fountains and two restrooms located along the trail as well as plenty of places to stop and have a quick bite to eat.
