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.

Lake Eola is located in the downtown/Thornton Park area of Orlando. It's a beautiful lake with many nice eateries located on/near it. The lake also hosts a number of community events. This is, by far, the nicest park in Orlando. If you are in the area make a point to stop by.

Between the live swans (over 100) and the swan boats on the lake and the bars, grills, cafes and restaurants it is a great day out or a weekend getaway.

My sons loves Pokémon Go, just like most people now days. Personally for me I don't understand why people are so into it. I grew up in the 80' where cow tippin' was our best entertainment. My sons told me that Lake Eola was the place to find these Pokémon characters. While they entertained themselves, I sat on the bench... More
