    Fantastic Location

    Had a great time. Definitely go in the morning to avoid peak heat hours.

    - Almost completely shaded
    - Doggy water fountains
    - Multiple Bathroom locations

    I highly recommend this spot for socializing from a small distance to see an array of adults, children, and other dogs.

    Nice shady walk

    Nice place to walk to avoid the heat. Also, very close to the I-75 if you want a break for you and the dog while on the road. $2 entrance fee per car but worth it. I took one bone away because the dogs cannot go on the boardwalk so you lose a bit of the experience.

    Relaxing walk

    Nice park, beautiful paved nature trail. Dogs are welcome everywhere but the boardwalk. Not a problem as there is a good 1.25-1.5 mile paved path.

    Nice park

    Large park with both paved and nature trails. With the heat we could not explore all trails, we will be back.

    Beautiful Trail

    Took our girl out for an early morning walk to beat the heat. Nature trail offers nice shading and plenty of smells to keep any dog thrilled. like that they have stations to deal with a “code: brown”, and a low water foundation for K9s. Great Morning and we’ll be back!! 🙂

    Got in the miles

    Nicely paved walkway to get some miles in. $2 cash entry fee. Well equipped with poop bags, garbage bins & doggie water fountain. Can be busy on weekends. Wish they allowed dogs on the boardwalk.

    Interesting Walk

    there is a $2 fee to enter. this location has numerous pathways to walk. there were plenty of poop stations to discard bags in. there’s a playground for children to play on so there were a lot of kids around (not good for shy or scared dogs). will definitely visit again.

    We Love this place

    I used to only come a couple times a week but now I bring both my daughter and my Dogo to join in on the fun at this beautiful place.

    Great park

    There is no off leash area, however the trails are paved or hard gravel and it was fantastic. A lot of armadillos and squirrels runningaround

    Huge park

    I brought my 2 small dogs here.
    There is no designated off leash area for the dogs and they are restricted from the boardwalk.
    But if you just want to walk around with your fur friend on a leash, this is the place for you.

    Great park

    Lettuce Lake Park is great for long walks with your dog. The entrance fee is only $2 and there is a paved trail, picnic areas, play ground, small visitor center, and a long boardwalk with a lookout tower. The only place they don't allow dogs is on the boardwalk which is my favorite part of the park so that is disappointing.
