This busy Tampa park is set on the banks of the Hillsborough River and adjacent wetlands. Its hallmark is 3,500 feet of boardwalk that explores interesting riverside wetlands, including Lettuce Lake, a slough of the Hillsborough River. An observation tower avails views of hardwood swamp and water beyond. This area is also known for its birding. Lettuce Lake packs several trails into its small area. It has 3,500 feet of boardwalk, a mile of natural-surface nature trails, and a 1.25-mile paved path open to walkers, hikers, and bicyclers. This hike incorporates all three of the trail types as it explores the park.
