There’s something for everyone at this large park surrounded by suburban homes. For nature lovers, there are five lakes, cypress swamps, pine flatwoods, hardwood hammocks, and lots of wildlife. Marked wooded pathways are great for hikers, cross-country runners, mountain bicyclists, and equestrians. There’s a fitness trail with workout stations, an archery range, two horse arenas, and opportunities to fish and boat on the lakes. The park has a track for Tampa BMX and radio-controlled car racing.
