Lettuce Lake Park - Review

Tampa’s favourite weekend nature and recreation getaway destination does not pull any punches! Firstly, it is quintessentially Floridian. It’s 240 acres of natural lands run through a fresh water wetland and flood plain, an oak-dominated hardwood forest, cypress domes, and the Hillsborough River. To help you stay clean through all this, there are boardwalks running throughout the park. For fun family moments, feel free to make use of the various BBQ pits, picnic tables, and an open playfield. Grab a book, find a shady spot and read. Let your kids freak out at the playground. There’s a biking trail/ jogging course that comes with it’s own fitness course.

Be sure to also visit the Audubon Resource Center at Lettuce Lake Park (a.k.a ARC in the Park), which features natural and wildlife exhibits pertaining to the Hillsborough River watershed.

On Saturdays and Sundays, you can visit the information centre around 8am to get a guided tour of the park, which begin at 8:30. Get your binoculars and cameras if you’re a birdie.

A lovely highlight is the three story tall watchtower, from where you can click pictures of some wonderful panoramas.

Lettuce Lake Park, Tampa Reviews

  • Very beautiful and enjoyable park. If you love nature, wildlife and trails, this is the place. Been here twice already in 6 months. They also have several trash cans placed, benches to rest. If you are lucky you can spot gators, several kinds of fish, turtles, owls, eagles and their nests on big tall trees. Its a nice place to enjoy it alone or with the family. There is also a beautiful lake/ river. Its a must see place if you are in tampa.

  • Wonderful park for the entire family. There is a playground for kids. It's a great place for the kids to bring their scooters. Boardwalk views are scenic. The canopy of the trees allow for shade with muted sunlight. There are also fitness excursions along the path. Magnificent park!

  • Beautiful outdoors area for the entire family, a date, or just a peace of mind. Beware nature is very abundant here.... VERY!!! We saw Gators, snakes, exotic birds... For us this was a welcoming to FL! We will come back for a picnic, but you can forget about me ever kayaking on this lake! 😳

  • Visited Lettuce Lake today on July 1, 2018, and it was fantastic. I was surprised how well maintained the park was and what it offered. For example, you can ride your bike, hike on the boardwalk or nature trails, BBQ at the shelters that overlook the woods on dry or wet land, fishing, and canoeing down the lake. The restroom we used was clean and well stocked. We saw a snake, different birds, and alligators. The cost is $2 per car and well worth the trip; we were there for 5 hours and only left because we ran out of water. This park is great for everyone. I dare you to visit!

  • Great county park. I took my puppy for the first time and we walked the paved trail and some new-to-me unpaved trails. very quiet on a mid week morning. lots of shade, great facilities. all the plants now have botanical labels, and I saw a ranger giving an educational tour to a large group of school children. I couldn't take pup on the boardwalk by the river which is too bad because that is the signature element of this park. still a great experience. birds, bunnies, and butterflies in abundance.
