Nice park and at least it's open again. Some trails blocked off due to flooding. It doesn't have many miles of paths so only do when I have limited time to hike - gets too boring otherwise to do the same trails 2-3 times in one day.

Been to Lettuce Lake many times. This is our "Go-To" hike for weekend mornings. We always take our camera because the wildlife is different every time. Never know what you will see there.

Lettuce Lake is a nice little stroll conveniently located near USF's campus. As others have mentioned, the main attraction here is not enjoying solitude in nature - the park tends to be very crowded, especially on weekends. We mainly enjoy coming here for the wide variety of wildlife that can easily be observed from the boardwalk: herons, wood storks, roseate spoonbills, egrets, woodpeckers, anhingas, gators, snakes, turtles, and fish are all typical sightings on any given day. Coming early in the morning is a good way to miss some of the crowds.

The boardwalk through the lake and riverside is amazing. I was there on a Friday early morning hike and the waterfowl wer everywhere. Also saw two hawk. Was unprepared for pix but the serene atmosphere was enjoyable.

A little hard to find if you use GPS. A USF facility is on one side of the river and the park on the other. Otherwise a very nice park and worth the $2 entrance fee. Pleasant but short walking trail.
