Fun Things to Do in Lake Wales and More

For those times when the kids say there is nothing to do, there is plenty of fun to be had at the Crystal Lake Play Park at 205 North 5th Street.  When the cabin fever of summer vacation starts to set in, this park is just the prescription needed.  Open from seven in the morning to seven at night, the pavilion can hold up to 40 people.  If you’re not there in time to claim the prime spot of the pavilion, there are six picnic tables and a large grill for those summertime hot dogs, chicken, or ribs.  Entry to the park is free, but if you want to work up a sweat you can check out the five tennis courts.  Make sure you call 863-678-4088 to make a reservation.

For some fun indoors, make sure to visit the Lake Wales Public Library.  This isn’t just about checking out what is on the shelves.  There are dozens of free things to do and it’s also a great place to make new friends.  Some of the no-cost events that happen there include knitting and crochet, yoga, and various book clubs.  There are also dozens of children’s activities available at the library.  To get a rundown, visit the library at 290 Cypress Gardens Lane or call 863-678-4004.

After a short trip down the road in your family vehicle, take a trip back in time by visiting the Lake Wales Depot Museum & Cultural Museum.  Discover this area’s history and heritage through exhibits, which are located inside a building built by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad in 1928.  Originally a train depot, it features exhibits that date back to 1911 when the city was formed.  A sampling of what you might see inside includes a 1,000-year-old Indian canoe that was discovered in Lake Hancock in 1994, as well as exhibits on cattle, citrus, and the turpentine industries Lake Wales is known for.  There are usually events happening and if you want to find out what’s on the agenda, check out their Facebook page.
