Located along Gladiolus Drive, this 279-acre public park features 158 acres of man-made freshwater lakes for you to enjoy. The park opened on April 21, 1984, but the lakes were formed by a rock mine that used to operate on the property during the 1960s.

Lakes Regional Park is operated by the Lee County Department of Parks and Recreation. It’s a great destination for bird watching, as it’s part of the Great Florida Birding Trail. This is definitely a park you want to visit when looking for outdoor activities in Fort Myers, FL.
