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.

We went on a Tuesday in February. The fountain is turned off on Tuesday for several hours for maintenance. So, you might want to avoid going then. There wasn't anything special going on while we were there, but I understand that Sunday is farmers' market day, and the weekend is a time for arts and crafts. There is an outdoor... More

Always a pretty evening stroll! Lake Eola has beautiful sculptures, neat little gardens and of course the now super-powered, neon fountain. I preferred it as the more simplistic version it used to be, but it still looks cool. As a kid in Orlando, going for a ride in the swan boats was always a treat. The swan boats are a... More

I visited this park on a Sunday morning. Really glad I did it. It's beautiful and a very relaxing place. On Sundays they have the farmer's market... This park is pet friendly and a great place to jog.

Lake Eola Park is my favorite part of downtown Orlando. The picturesque walkways around the lake add to the downtown experience, and the fountain, especially when lit at night, is a very aesthetically pleasing element to the park.

So much to see and do, especially on a Sunday morning when the Farmers Market is on. A magical place, where you can attend the open air theatre or just walk around the lake and enjoy the turtles and birds.

This park was great for walking and for just sitting and watching all the swans and other birds. You can rent paddle boats that look like swans. There is a large fountain in the middle. It was about a 25 minute drive from our hotel near the airport but it was very nice.
