I lived on Speer Lake for quite some time before moving to where I live now which is on a larger lake. I lived in Signature Lakes on the western shoreline. I can tell you that this lake is often visited by seaplanes, we witnessed the fireworks in Walt Disney World nightly (unless cloudy) and we loved living on the lake. There are however some dinosaurs we shared the lake with. That never kept fishermen and watersports enthusiast away and there was never and incident. However in the evening and early mornings we did occasionally see some larger alligators.
