Lake Eola Park is located in the heart of Downtown Orlando. The sidewalk that circles the lake is 0.9 miles in length, making it easy for visitors to keep track of their walking or running distances. Other activities available to park visitors include renting swan-shaped paddle boats, feeding the live swans and other birds inhabiting the park, seeing a concert or a play in the Walt Disney Amphitheater, grabbing a bite to eat at Relax Grill on Lake Eola or relaxing amid beautiful flower beds and a spectacular view of Orlando's skyline. Parking is free on Eola Drive on the east side of the park and there is metered parking on Central Boulevard and Rosalind Avenue. There is also street parking in Eola Heights and Thornton Park, a two to five block walk to the park. You can also park in any of the garages within a few blocks of the park. These include the Post Parkside parking garage at Osceola Avenue and East Central Boulevard; the Paramount/Publix parking garage at Lake Avenue and East Central Boulevard; and the Library parking garage at 112 East Central Boulevard. Please note: swans can get sick eating bread and popcorn. Visitors to the park can feed them lettuce, spinach, duck food pellets or buy food from the new swan feeders.

This lake is the best thing about downtown Orlando. The path around it is easily walk able. Lots of benches to stop and relax. At nights the fountain lights up with a multitude of colors.

Great area, nice walking around the lake with lots of shade. Nice play area for kids. Close to all things downtown. Visit on weekends and the many festivals that are free.

Nice place to go for a walk or a run. There are swans and also a bar that opens for early evening. Only warning is this is where the homeless sleep at night, but seem to disappear come daytime.

Nice location. We enjoyed the scenery and the beautiful animals. The W.O.B was a great restaurant to visit and try the samples of different beer.

What a beautiful lake. Worth visiting as there is a nice boat tour you can take of this Lake and a few others nearby. There are many different birds that are around the lake so that was a nice treat.

I was smitten by the idea of a park with a lake close by the hotel as my afternoon walking outing. Unfortunately, it was not really very clean and there were homeless people at almost every bench. A few were aggressive and scary at times....More
