Walking the 2.5 miles of paved and unpaved paths at Lakes Park is free but if you have a few extra dollars there are boat and bike rentals too. Workout stations with waterfront views are perfect for burning a few calories. The small water park is open for kids to cool off and concessions are available if you didn't pack a lunch. Check out the Miniature Railroad with a 15 minute ride past a small scale village. Also, look for exotic vegetation and the occasional alligator in the 158 acres of freshwater quarry lakes; fishing is allowed. On your walk or ride, keep eyes open for exotic birds, enjoy the fragrance garden, and rest in the gazebo or the many covered picnic areas. The park is also home to numerous cultural and music festivals, with a seasonal Farmers Market.
