Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake...

Lakeside Bike Path within Orlando's Largest Park

Bill Frederick Park covers 183 acres at Turkey Lake near MetroWest in south Orlando. A 2-mile paved bike path circles the Park, with one short break at the far end, with very little traffic. Only a few yards on-road completes the loop. The Park is close to the attractions, restaurants and shopping, a pre-Disney diamond in the rough. Bike rentals (not many, so call ahead) are available at the Park. Turkey Lake is famous for its fishing, which is maintained by limited boat access, active lake management, and enforcement of standards. (Map and photos below.)

Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake... Comments and Photos

In addition to the bike path, this pleasant park has picnicking, playgrounds, swimming pool, limited boat rentals, (good fishing strictly regulated), hiking trails, and 3 disc (Frisbee) golf courses... a great place to bring the kids. Camping and RV park also available. The only negative is road noise from nearby I-4.


Biking at Bill Frederick Park, Turkey Lake, Orlando

The path meanders about two miles around the park, circling the disc golf courses, past the pool, playground and picnicking along the lakeside.

Bring Your Fishing Rod Too

Turkey Lake has been featured in "Bassmaster" magazine, "Florida Sportsman" and ESPN's "Casting Crew." Thanks to cooperation between the FWC, City of Orlando and Bass Pro Shops, fishermen can rent an aluminum bass boat at the Park for the day. In order to maintain quality, boat fishing is limited to four boats, Thursday - Sunday, 6:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Catch-and-release for largemouth bass, limits on panfish and catfish. This is only way the public can legally fish Turkey Lake from a watercraft. Shoreline fishing is available anytime the park is open, with fishing piers and fish attractors at spots along the shoreline. Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake offers RV hookups, campsites, primitive cabins (with AC), a swimming pool, numerous picnic pavilions and bathrooms, a playground area, a Frisbee golf course and a "mock-up" of an old historic Florida farm. Possession of cast nets is prohibited.
