Description

You have a very good chance of seeing an alligator cruising in a stream if you go to Lake Lotus Nature Park. Before I tell you more, I have to warn you the park is closed Monday-Wednesday.
If you want to see an alligator in the wild, here's where to go: When you enter the park, you drive over two bridges. After that there is a boardwalk on your right. Walk on this boardwalk a few steps to a trash can, and then take the right fork. The alligator is right in front of you in shallow water at about 1 o'clock. He likes to hang out in this spot! Come in the middle of the day toward the morning for a better chance to see him sitting in the sun!!
You can also walk a boardwalk through pretty jungle to two gazebos on the lake. Here men fish from the boardwalk. The gazebos are made with a pretty, curved design.
There is a playground at this park too, with a large tire to climb through, and a standard play structure.
