There is a Panera Bread near by. The fountain is beautiful. Early morning or at sunset are the best time. Too hot in middle of the day. Great playground for the children. Good place to catch a theatrical show at the outdoor theater. Bring a bottle of water. I would not go alone late at night.

I live very close to Lake Eola Park and I'm a frequent visitor. There always seems to be something going on on weekends, festivals, Wine Tasting, concerts, etc and while that makes the park sound busy it rarely feels busy. If you like to walk there are some really beautiful sculptures around the lake to see! The fountain in the... More

Beautiful setting with a walkway allowing you to circle the whole lake. it took us about 45 minutes but we stopped off a few times to admire the view. There are areas where you can picnic and restrooms. Parking was free on street but it was a Sunday, not sure about midweek. Will return again for a break from the... More

We went to Lake Eola on Saturday the 14th and enjoyed a nice dinner picnic with our students from the UK. The weather was a little chilli but the sun was out as well as all the swans on the lake. The views of the buildings through the rays were also pretty stunning. Great times with great friends on a... More

When that beautiful florida weather is on point , nothing is better than a stroll around Lake Eola. Especially on Sundays when the farmers market is happening. A great way to spread the day either gather your weekly veggies, people watching with a mimosa, spreading your legs at yoga in the park, or simply taking in some sun. One of... More

There is so much to do at Lake Eola on a Sunday! There is the farmers market which normally lasts until 3pm. There are also quite a few of the surrounding restaurants that offer a brunch special to include tasty, cheap mimosas and bloody marys. Between the people, the animals, the music and the water...you just can't get enough of... More

It's very nice to just take a walk around the lake, it's very peaceful when it's not crowded, lots of people start going there around 5pm, dogs are allowed, there is also a small restaurant with outside seating incase you get hungry.

This is the Central Park for the City Beautifl. It is has a large lake with a fountain. The fountain has a music and light show every night. The park has a variety of sculptures, a large playground for children and many restaurants and bars in or around it. Locals like to take their dogs for walks or go jogging... More

An awesome location to see the fireworks in Orlando. Even if you get there late there will be plenty of space to find a place to watch them. Do park on the east side of downtown there will be much less headache with traffic leaving. Go back on a different day to try out the Swan Paddle boats for $15/30... More
