Located in suburban Roodepoort, south of the railway line, Florida Lake boasts a bird sanctuary where a lake is home to a host of waterfowl that makes bird watching here a delight. The park also has a putt-putt course, an Olympic-sized swimming pool (that recently underwent repairs) and an adventure park for children. On public holidays the place is usually buzzing.

From the air, the lake is a sizeable one, surrounded by large shady trees, and a spot where locals come to launch their canoes and sail boats for relaxation, after which they braai or picnic around the lake.

Florida Lake is flanked by residential properties to the north, and park lands to both east and west. It serves as a green lung in a rather densely built part of Johannesburg. Whilst it has not received any of the recent attention that other parks, like Diepsloot and Diepkloof Parks, have it nonetheless provides the neighbourhood of Florida with a green space that makes weekends that much more pleasant.

The local sea scouts, for boys and girls, that operates from Florida Lake Sea Scout Hall use the lake for sailing. As members of the World organisation Scouting Movement, the aim is to develop young people through the medium of fun and activity, specifically rowing, canoeing, sailing, hiking, camping, orienteering etc.
