With an average of 355 days of sunshine every year and average high temperature of 85 degrees, the City of Cape Coral is a great place to get outside and play! There's no need to go further than your local parks to find a wide variety of outdoor recreation options.
Looking for some fun physical recreation? Be sure to check out the options for bicycling and kayaking as well as the parks throughout the city that offer fitness areas and paths. If you are in the mood for a little friendly competition, several of Cape Coral's parks are equipped to host sports / games including basketball, bocce, shuffleboard, tennis and even pickleball! Southwest Florida youth and adults also have the opportunity to participate in the athletics organized by the Parks & Recreation Department such as softball, baseball and football.
If you want to get in touch with nature, be sure to look into our eco tourism / recreation activities like birding, fishing, kayaking, and wildlife viewing and/or hit Cape Coral's walking and nature trails for some great scenery and exercise. Or, maybe you are more in the mood to visit the beaches and soak in the Florida sun and views of the water and sea life - Cape Coral has it all!
Have children? Be sure to take them to one of the many playgrounds located throughout the city. Most play areas also have picnic areas so you can rent a pavilion and make a full day of play or just visit the playground until the kids are worn out!
Cape Coral also has several boat launches for boating enthusiasts who are looking for direct access to the Gulf of Mexico or the many miles of freshwater canals and lakes. Click here for a map of improved and unimproved launches.
