A good addition to a 'non-Disney' Orlando vacation. The Sunday farmer's market was great with lots of food and crafts options. Ton's of well-behaved leashed dogs in addition to lots of bird life. The stroll around the lake is just the right amount of exercise to work up an appetite

Beautifull place, quiet, well maneged, clean, black and White swans walking around, ducks, squirels, people walking with the dogs...My wife dreams off living around it. Been there last year and had to return there this year just to relax there for two hours.

There are great views of downtown Orlando. A clean park with beautiful sculptures, children's playground and the exercise with the swan boats.

A lovely walk around the lake meeting all the different wildlife. Doesn't feel like the middle of downtown Orlando. Only gave it 4/5 because I didn't think much of the farmers market. Not many farmers, more like a hippy convention.

For a laid back day, take a walk around the park and enjoy the climate. The walk around the park is about 1/2 mile, there is a cafe with alcohol; paddle boats if you got the inkling; some mediocre art forms; bird life abounds; the famous fountain in the lake (though not in its former glory); a small band shell...

We are new to Orlando and have been checking out the farmer's markets and things to see. Sunday morning was free, easy to get to, easy street parking, very well kept city park which surrounds the lake. We found that there were 2 markets - one seemed to be advertisers and middle eastern goods. The other was a traditional, large... More

Instead of going to dowtown Disney, go to Dowtown Orlando. You will get to feed real swams and ducks, the city even sells their special foo (no bread please). Some homeless element, but they are not agressive like in other cities, they dont pan handle you. There is a super nice playground for the little ones, and photo ops by... More

This park is one of the oldest parks in Orlando. It use to be surrounded by 1800's Victorian homes but most of them have been torn down to expand the park. This park is very busy and there is very little parking available and what is offered is usually taken. Best bet is the parking garages. Lots of swans, squirrels... More
