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.

It's the park that everyone goes too and every event you can think of has been held here. I like seeing the mix of people of all ages and backgrounds. It's a huge park with a beautiful view of downtown. The only unpleasant things about it is all the birdie poop on sidewalks so you need to watch your step.... More

If in Orlando, you must visit this spot. It is just a 6 blocks from the central part of downtown. However, you cannot spot it from Interstate 4, which cuts through the middle of downtown Orlando. The streets border it are S Rosalind Ave, E Central Blvd, N Eola Drive and W.Robinson St. Surprisingly you can actually sometimes find free... More

You must find time to visit the park. It is beautiful, very well maintained, clean and green. We visited on the weekend when they have a small fair with food and some crafts for sale. Awesome quality time for the family. I would love to go back on my first opportunity.

Lake Eola Park is a great family place to visit. The lake is beautiful and they even have a play area for the children.

I would recommend this area for many reasons. First, you have an opportunity to see a beautiful area. The beauty of this park is relaxing sight especially after you had a long stressful day at work. I adore the swans there. They remind me of elegant dancers! The best time to go there in the summer is in the evening... More

Nice quite walk around the lake. Do not feed the birds, signs say no feeding. Places to sit and relax.

I have lived in Orlando since 1974 and Eola park was a place that I used to take my children to play when they were little. I definitely would not go down to Eola park at night but during the middle of the day it's quite beautiful and a nice walk. The swans are spectacular and there are many people... More
