If you do a lot of boating in DeSoto County, and you regularly use boat ramps, you more than likely have noticed the ramp at Lettuce Lake Park is out of service. And it’s going to be for a while.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission awarded DeSoto County a $351,000 grant under its Florida Boating Improvement Program. The grant will be used to give the Lettuce Lake facility a much-needed face lift. It may have taken a little while to get the ball rolling, but it is rolling. The project is estimated to be complete by May or June.
