Laishley Park in Punta Gorda

Located in the heart of historic Punta Gorda, Laishley Park is a picturesque spot for a leisurely stroll, picnic or daily constitutional. This area is just one of the many reasons why a stay at Shell Creek RV Resort is pleasant, indeed.

The 17-acre park has an interactive fountain and gazebo along with the following attractions:

  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial - A wall bearing the names of 58,000 men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to serve their country.
  • Punta Gorda Pathways - 18 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails that connect the city’s parks, commercial areas and neighborhoods.
  • Harborwalk - Walkway that runs two and a half miles along Charlotte Harbor. It offers views of mangrove forests and passes historical sites, restaurants and shops.

Laishley Crab House

Located next to the park on the waterfront, Laishley Crab House offers diners a beautiful view. The daily fish special is popular, and the salads are very good as well. One of the appetizers that come highly recommended is the fried green tomatoes. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available.

Harborwalk Scoops and Bites

Rated by TripAdvisor as the #1 ice cream shop in America, Harborwalk Scoops and Bites is a frequent stop for park-goers. The ice cream is incredible and the service is friendly.
