We went to the farmers market on Sunday, a nice variety of food but mostly crafts ans food carts rather than actual produce but still enjoyable to walk around. It's a beautiful, well kept park but parking was a nightmare, there are parking ramps but not all available to the public, we finally found one across from the public library... More

Nice weather. The farmer's market on the weekends are the best. They have local venders and artists. Overall the best time to go to Lake Eola is during the spring time and mid fall. The sunset over the city is the best on a clear day. It's nice to see ducks walking and swimming in the water but be careful... More

I spent an afternoon walking around and it really was the centre of activity. I enjoyed how clean it was, many benches, areas for people to play sports, and there was even a band stand. I loved looking at all the swans that were there and spent a good hour relaxing and taking in the scenery.

Love Orlando and Lake Eola. There is always something going on around Lake Eola. We take picnics in the parks here and take advantage of the farmers market on Sundays. They recently put in a World of Beer that is absolutely amazing!!! Kalia

Even thought the weather turned cool & cloudy, we still visited this park. Nice to see, in the middle of the city. Good restaurants near by for lunch. Street parking was easy (it was a Thursday). Like to see the birds. I have been to their Sunday Farmers Marker before - fun.

this is the place which is pleasant to live close by. cute center of orlando, clean, well balanced as for the buildings architecture. lake is small with fountain in the middle, surrounded by roads and little park from side. worth walking around to enjoy peacefulness in the middle of touristic megapolis

What a lovely park!!! We went on a not so great weather winter day and still had a wonderful time. We rented a swan paddleboat - four adults fit nicely - for $15 for half of an hour. If the weather were warmer, we may have wanted more time, but we had time to go all around the lake, look... More

We always visit this park primarily for the big playground that is fenced in so you don't have to worry about the little ones running out. Our 7yo has enjoyed playing there each time we've visited since she was 3. There are a number of places to sit and enjoy our coffee while the child plays with new friends. Dogs... More
