A pit stop in racing is quick. It’s necessary, but a prolonged stay is unwise and unneeded. A Southwest Florida Pit Stop is a quick visit (less than 30 minutes) to a quick, fun, cheap place in the Fort Myers, Sanibel, Naples, Cape Coral area.
A quick trip around Lakes Park fits this description well.
Of course, with a train, a playground for the kids, water sport rentals, grills, pavilions, and a fitness trail Lakes Park can be an all-day event. It fits in the “pit stop” category as a nice walk – an oasis off Daniels Parkway. Lakes Park is evening home
to a large collection of wading birds including ibises, egrets, and herons.
Parking is $1 an hour or $5 for the day. The October-April farmer’s market at the park is the largest in the area.
Lakes Park is located at 7330 Gladiolus Dr., Fort Myers, FL 33908.
