Lake Park offers the perfect combination of fun activities, excitement and breathtaking beauty. This 589-acre Park is a sanctuary for birds and wildlife, and features five lakes, cypress swamps, pine flatwoods, and hardwood hammocks.
Lake Park is also home to an archery range, 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.
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.
Wildlife viewing can be enjoyed on the exercise trail or the two-mile scenic hiking trails. Lake Park also offers jogging paths, picnic pavilions with furnished grills, picnic tables, playgrounds, and primitive camping.
