This park is beautiful. It is peaceful. Feeding the swans and ducks gives the kids something to do while you just take in the surroundings. You can take beautiful pictures. if you wait for the sun to go down, then the fountain really comes alive with all the different lights.

Pretty lake with nice fountain that lights up at night. They have all kinds of birds (every species of Swan in the world is represented here) and dispensers so you can feed them yourself. A handful of cool bars and brunch spots are located right next to the walking paths. Sunday mornings they have a nice farmers market set up... More

We were at an event in the park at night. The fountain was beautiful as it turned different colors. there were people running and walking their dogs. It is a nice park. Great location for the event!

We were looking for something to do on a Sunday...instead of theme parks. Found Lake Eola which featured a farmers's market every Sunday. First - do not even attempt to find on street parking - just find a cheap parking garage and pay the fee! Second - considers eating lunch at the market - the food vendors out number all... More

It wasn't in out original and but had time in Sunday, so we went. There was a farmers market which occurs every Sunday. Loved the ambiance and the variety of products in the market. There's parking around the park for about $5 and parking space with meters. The park is beautiful and on Sundays it's full of families and beautiful... More

Lake Eola is a good place to spend a weekend enjoying the scenery. There are places to eat, exercise, enjoy a gondola ride or swan boat ride, or hide in the shade people watching. Tons of festivals, events, and a farmer's market make Lake Eola the most vibrant park in the heart of downtown Orlando.

We were amazed at the variety of birds that inhabit this lake, specially black swans. Nice sculptures and the fountain in the lake. Very impressive.

bring quarters for parking ($2 for 2 hours)and swan feeding. They're hungry! Plenty rest rooms, we stopped at the local tavern and had wings and beer. Swan paddle boats looked like fun but we passed. Sunday is free parking and the outdoor market.
