Lettuce Lake Conservation Park is one of Hillsborough County's most visited parks. More than half of the park’s property lies in the natural floodplain of the Hillsborough River, consisting of a hardwood swamp forest. The remainder of the park consists of hardwood hammocks and pine flatwoods plant communities.

The park features wooded picnic areas, a 1.25-mile paved exercise trail and 3,500-foot boardwalk with an observation tower that provides scenic views of the Hillsborough River.

In 2024, two new playgrounds were built with swings, adaptive and sensory equipment, and a scavenger hunt where children look for medallions to identify animals and plants. Park ranger and volunteer-led nature education tours are available on weekends. Canoe and kayaks rentals provide up-close encounters with a variety of aquatic birds and wildlife.

Please Note: Pets and bicycles are not permitted on the boardwalk.

Canoeing and kayaking

Canoes and kayaks can be rented on site at the park's entry station. See other locations.
