Lake Park offers visitors the perfect combination of fun activities, excitement, and breathtaking beauty. This 589-acre site is a sanctuary for birds and wildlife, and features five lakes, cypress swamps, pine flatwoods, and hardwood hammocks. Hikers and nature lovers can bird watch on the exercise trail or the two-mile scenic hiking trails. Lake Park also offers jogging paths, picnic pavilions with furnished grills, picnic tables and shelters, playgrounds, and primitive camping (camping is limited to youth groups only.)
But for those campers that love more physically demanding activities, the park is also home to a boat ramp and kayak launch, a BMX bicycle track, two equestrian arenas, and a radio-controlled car track, making it one of Hillsborough County’s most unique regional parks. These facilities are open to the public except during races, events, and tournaments.
Cooperative partnerships with local organizations, such as the Gasparilla Bowmen Archery Club, Tampa BMX Raceway, Inc., and the Hurricane R/C Club, allow Hillsborough County to provide these high quality facilities at Lake Park.
