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.

We ended up going to Lake Eola this past Sunday as we decided the weather was perfect enough for a nice stroll around the lake. There were so many beautiful swans swimming around that day and the lake was covered with them. We very much enjoyed just sitting on one of the park bench and people watch for an hour... More

This park has been around for a very long time. It has been modified for the better throughout the years. It is great for couples who just want to ride together in the swan boats or just walk hand in hand to some great music or just the beautiful light show that happens multiple time within an hour. They have... More

We went on a Sunday and really enjoyed the Farmer's Market. There were some great artisans and small booths. The swan's are a bit territorial but truly lovely to watch.

We visited Lake Eola Park in July 2016 when we were waiting for our next hotel reservation to begin. The park itself is beautiful with a gorgeous fountain in the middle. They had a sign up at the entrance for Disney concerts. but we did not attend one. They had a farmers' market going on filled with tons of neat... More

This is a favorite location for visitors and locals to walk around Lake Eola Park, feed the swans and ducks, take in the breeze off the water, enjoy the eateries that border the lake, and watch the water feature come to life at night with a unique set of colors and water spouts, During the day, weather permitting, you can...

We always visit Lake Eola on a Sunday for a peaceful, relaxing walk around the lake and to browse the Farmers Market & Artisan stalls. Gets you away from the madness of Universal/Disney for a few hours, highly recommended.

I love coming here to bike or just hang out and contemplate the beautiful diverse species of birds. I tend to bring bread and feed the swans that freely roam by the area and on weekends there's activities and mini portable shops selling art and different items. This is my favorite public place in orlando.

I LOVE this park! It's great to walk around or stop on a bench and just relax. There are also some nice restaurants right next to the park.
