On the south end of Lido you will find South Lido Park, a natural 100 acre park where no pesticides are used. At this park there are many shade trees, picnic facilities, restrooms, volleyball courts, nature trails, large shade trees and some quiet beach areas.

This is a great place to see manatees and dolphins, we anchored our boat here and saw a family of 4 manatees recently.
