After a crazy few days at Disney we escaped to visit the delights of Lake Eola in Orlando. It took about 30 mins from Kissimmee (we used Travelmath/google directions to aid us!). It was a world away from the mickey fest! It's a lovely walk of around a mile, and despite the heat a pleasurable one with lots of shade... More

The lake is so serene with black and white swans and surrounded by greenery in the middle of a concrete jungle. Our kids enjoyed the paddle boating as well. They also have a kids area with swings/slides. Overall, a wonderful time spent with family outdoors.Perfect for a picnic under the stars.

My family and I visit Orlando at least once a year on vacation. We never been to Lake Eola Park before but this year we found this jewel. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Disney World and Downtown Orlando. This beautiful lake appears. We will be coming here for years to come. Thank you for making great... More

Lake Eola Park is truly beautiful and a great area to explore. My husband and I were visiting the area with our Golden Retriever, Pineapple. We visited on Sunday so that we could visit the Farmer's Market. Pineapple was a little excited from all the sounds and smells at the Farmer's Market, so we opted to walk her around the... More

My wife took me back to Lake Eola this past Sunday since my last experience there was not the best ever. We actually also brought our two dogs for a walk there and it was very peaceful. The weather was absolutely perfect that morning and walking all the way around only took about 40 minutes. There's a ton of birds... More

It is a very nice setting. There are paddle swan boats, people being happy, puppy's taking walks on leashes sometimes music playing. Dont advise doing anything in the peak of summer wait for the sun to set. But very nice all in all

Fourth of July fun! Go out and have a good time with the family. We walked from the hotel, well worth the effort.

Art work scattered around the park, an ever-changing water fountain, swan pedal boats on certain days, and the best jogging/walking views in DTO. Please take a few minutes to visit Lake Eola - it was voted the best park in downtown via Best of Orlando 2014.

Christmas time is the best time to be at Lake Eola Park! Its so pretty, the perfect spot to walk around on a romantic date and take pictures and everything. I even walked by a man proposing to his girlfriend in front of the big Christmas Tree by the amphitheater. Plus there are many places to shop and eat around... More

Downtown Orlando seems to be the unknown part of the very popular area of Orlando. With many tourists preferring to spend time at the malls or the parks. Its a truly suburban experience, and much more like a city that Londoners would be used to for example. High rise buildings, corporate headquarters etc. But it also has plenty of amenities,... More
