A new six-passenger golf cart dubbed “E.Z. Rider” is now available for reservation at Lakes Park. A complimentary service provided by the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation, E.Z. Rider provides courtesy in-park transportation for park guests, driven by a Lee County Parks & Recreation certified volunteer guide.
“We believe everyone should be able to enjoy Lakes Park, and that is the inspiration behind E.Z. Rider,” said Wendi Carroll, president of the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation. “Although anyone can reserve E.Z. Rider, it serves the important purpose of transporting individuals and families who could not enjoy the park together otherwise.”
E.Z. Rider tours span 1 to 1 ½ hours with commentary that can be customized for those with a particular interest in the gardens or bird viewing. Passengers ages 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult, and guests who require physical assistance must be accompanied by a caregiver. Guests may bring non-alcoholic refreshments, but only small personal coolers that fit on the cart floor in the foot space are permitted. Smoking is not permitted. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 239-533-7575, ext. 5.
