Lake County remains nature’s paradise, with nearly 500 acres of active parks and more than 3,400 acres of passive parkland, much of which is protected public land. Walkers, joggers and cyclists are treated to 45 miles of hilly recreational trails, both paved and unpaved.

Natural habitats, full of flora and fauna, attract hikers and avid bird watchers to these undisturbed lands where protected species like the Florida scrub jay and gopher tortoise peacefully reside. Canoeists and kayakers can enjoy the area’s wildlife as they glide along 139 miles of the Lake County Community Blueways Project.
