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.

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.
