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

Beautiful place in the city. The kids loved watching the swans and walking around. Great place for a picnic.

Calm and lovely place, with beautiful backround (just a short walk and You will be in the middle of an area with a lot of FL typical house and streets - do not miss it)

Just a park near a smallish man-made lake. If you like to run, bike or walk, it's a pretty nice 1 mile-ish course. There are a lot of people doing that, especially in the evenings as it gets cooler. There are some trees that provide shades, and some benches if you want to sit down. The lake has ducks, swans,... More

Spent a lovely afternoon walking around this park and enjoying the Sunday market, taking pictures of the lake, the trees, the skyline, etc. I feel that I got a pretty good cross-section of Orlando culture by listening to the (quite good) live music, sampling food from the vendors at the market, checking out some local crafts and artisans, etc. I...

If you are visiting Orlando over a period of 2 weeks or more why not take a break from all of the attractions, give Lake Eola a visit. Our favourite time of the week is Sunday morning, there is a Sunday market of arts and crafts and food. After a slow walk around the lake, call in at the open... More

On our first day in orlando, we decide to explore the downtown, we found out the parking machines only accept coins, we parked in a nearby building park, which I think is best when you don't have any coins, the park has nice area for drinks, you can spend a couple of hours in there, nice spot in the middle...

We had a couple of hours before my husband had to catch a plane. Rather than sit around all morning watching time fly we decided to do something fun. Off to Lake Eola! Thanks to other reviewers we knew not to take grains to feed the swans. Only greens for those beautiful birds! I recommend parking at a metered space... More

This is a really nice park. We visited on a Sunday morning and there was a small farmers market which was offering food, fruit and vegetables and craft items for sale. We bought some juice which was great! We had a walk around the park looking at the wildlife. There were a couple of homeless people around the restrooms but... More
