We had a good walk on a Sunday-afternoon... Quiet, fun, we saw some alligators (and a lot of turtles!!)... Good time to just enjoy being together and look at nature. It was very hot that day, but under the trees it was good walking.

We went right after it had rained, so the park wasn't very busy. There are several places to sit for a picnic. The bathrooms are well maintained, although the soap was out in the women's bathroom that particular day. Otherwise, a wonderful place to stop.

Greenfield Park has been around for a long, long time. It is quite lovely. The paved path circumnavigates the park -- it is a long walk! Rent a peddle boat and cruise the lake. Alligators and birds and turtles. All so beautiful.

Our former home was located just a block away from the loop that is part of Greenfield Lake, and as long as the weather was nice we would go there almost every day. The loop around the lake is great to walk, run, or bike...More

Definitely a must see for anyone visiting from out of town! They’ve got water activities, playgrounds, a nice loop around the park for hiking or biking, docks to view animal life like turtles and alligators. A great place to be if you love the outdoors!

It is almost a 5 mile walk around Greenfield Lake, so choose a nice day. If you are not up for walking that far you can take a row boat out on the lake. The lake does have alligators and you often see them sunning...More

Beautiful, charming park. There seems to always be something fun going on here. Fun times for all the family. I personally love all the turtles you can see here!

My experience is that you can see from the general admission seats. That is the way we always go. It's an small amphitheater so you car close no matter where you sit. Get there early for best seats. We bring a picnic to... More
