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.

Parking is free on Eola Drive on the east side of the park and there is metered parking on Central Boulevard and Rosalind Avenue. There is also street parking in Eola Heights and Thornton Park, a two to five block walk to the park.

You can also park in any of the garages within a few blocks of the park. These include the Post Parkside parking garage at Osceola Avenue and East Central Boulevard; the Paramount/Publix parking garage at Lake Avenue and East Central Boulevard; and the Library parking garage at 112 East Central Boulevard.

Please note: swans can get sick eating bread and popcorn. Visitors to the park can feed them lettuce, spinach, duck food pellets or buy food from the new swan feeders.

Went to the farmers market on Sunday,great way to spend a sunny Sunday morning people watching and enjoying the food and drinks on offer, beautiful lake but a worry for America where the large amount of homeless people on nearly all the benches, we weren't hassled but it makes you appreciate what you have in this country.

We winter near Disney - about 20 miles south of downtown Orlando, so we always add a little bit of time to visit Lake Eola Park and walk the perimeter. The walk is pleasant and there are many sculptures and stops along the way. There is abundant wildlife as well as throngs of people, including some indigents looking for a... More

Lake Eola is a very nice place to go on a summer Sunday morning if you have some extra time in Orlando. It has great open space for kids to run, playground and even a really nice farmers market. I recommend it!

Lights and music and park is well kept up. Can Swan paddle boat in the lake for reasonable price. Few stray bums here and there but it is downtown and they keep to themselves.

This great public park in the heart of Orlando is a quiet spot away from the Theme Parks ideal to excercise or take a stroll. The fountain went thru a renovation and is looking as marvelous as ever, a really enjoyable place.

Pleasant park, nice stroll with lots of birds and restaurants / bars to visit along the way. Biggest problem is there are too many homeless hanging around the park, benches, tables, paths, etc. Really detracts from the visit.

Lake Eola is a great walk/jog in the center of Orlando. On Sundays they have a farmers market with music. Around the lake you can walk to restaurants/pubs and enjoy a beautiful day. There are many activities that happen in the area, just check the calendar to see what's happening. Parking can be an issue at times.

If you're looking for a fun, beautiful place to take your owner, Lake Eola is THE place. My favorite time to visit is Sunday, during the Farmers Market. There is yummy food everywhere, entertainment, beautiful women who give me lots of attention, dozens of other dogs, swans, water, boats, beer and vendors, it's AWESOME!!!
