Explore Cape Coral’s Parks

Situated in warm Southwest Florida, the city of Cape Coral is the ideal place to explore the outdoors, especially parks. The city offers breath-taking views being that it is surrounded by water on three sides. Not to mention, that the area is full of some impressive flora and fauna. When the humidity dies down, the best place to be in Cape Coral is outside, specifically in one of the city’s parks. Residents and visitors can enjoy a day in the sun exploring these beautiful public parks (39 to be exact!) and all they have to offer.

Below, I’ve picked a few of the city’s best parks for you to learn more about:
