One of our area’s most visited parks for both locals and visitors, Lakes Regional Park is known for its 300 acres of gorgeous lakes, preserve areas, gardens and recreational features.
Amenities for families to enjoy include the new Children’s Garden, playgrounds, water features, nature trails, botanic gardens and lakeside picnic areas. Wheel Fun offers all types of bike rentals to travel the park. Kayak and paddle boat rentals are available to explore the lakes and get a close-up view of the abundant bird population.
The Train Museum and its popular miniature train ride takes all ages on a 15-minute ride. For outside exercise, a series of fitness stations complement the 3.5 miles of walking/running trails throughout the park.
Lakes Park is a short 25-minute drive across the Sanibel Causeway in Fort Myers.
