Parks & Recreation

One of the advantages of living and working in the Lake Wales community is the diversity of parks and facilities available for leisure activities.

The Public Services Department of the City of Lake Wales currently maintains more than 110 acres of parks and a variety of recreational facilities that include a 2.5-mile bike-hike trail on the shores of Lake Wailes Lake, a community center, a renovated historic gymnasium, several neighborhood playgrounds, and 2 recreation/sports complexes.
