Took a walk around Lake Eola with my wife on a beautiful Friday afternoon. So relaxing and romantic. Charming park in the heart of Orlando. Lots to see and do. Love watching the swan paddle boats and the real swans gliding across the lake. Delightful landscape and art around the park, including a spectacular fountain. Definitely worth a visit and... More

We are here on vacation as we are every year. This year with no kids we did some adult stuff. This park is so perfect to walk hand in hand with that special someone! Plenty of grass to sit in the shade or sun, waterfront or not. People walking dogs, kids playing, people jogging. Saw they had a nice play... More

Very nice, well maintained park with interesting wildlife to be seen (esp. the turtles!). I highly recommend going on a Sunday so you can catch the farmers market.

We parked close to the park on a Sunday morning (which is fee) and took a lovely stroll around the lake before the Farmer's Market opened. The Farmer's Market was fun, with lots of stalls offering food, clothes and many other options besides.

Dinner, A walk, Sunday Flea Markets, this place is amazing, so much to do around the lake in the heart of downtown Orlando! I regret not buying a condo right there a few years ago, always lively.

I absolutely love Lake Eola! Its beautiful and Peaceful. The perfect "heart to the city"! On Sundays there is the Farmers market which is really enjoyable! There are many different vendors and tons of delicious foods to try. There is also yoga on the lawn at times! There is a playground for the kids. Definitely plenty to see here. Great... More

My dtr loved drinking out of a coconut! The lake is pretty and they rent swan shaped paddle boats. There are street performers- mostly... More

A great break to all the busy & costly things in Orlando. The grounds are well kept and clean. The swans are beatiful. The park is about 20 minutes north from Disney. Take the time... take a walk & enjoy the beauty of this park.
