Loyce E. Harpe Park reviews

Places to explore with a feeling of old Florida. The bike paths look fun and challenging! There were places to fish and hike. A wonderful area to bring your dogs to play as well. Juicy a terrific place for the whole family!
This park is great. There plenty of room for all types of events and it's always growing. I spent most of my time hiking the bike trails. Lots of Gators during the warm months though. It's free and there's a dog park. Trail head starts in the back. You walk the road back to the beginning or retrace your steps. The sceneary changes from backyard woods, to an open area with sand tortoises around, to walking small paths between the lake. Pretty cool.
