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.

A Sunday morning walk around Lake Eola in downtown Orlando has become an every week occurrence now. The scenery, (with the exception of the occasional homeless person napping) makes for a pleasant start to a day. The swans and other wild life are a pleasant reminder about how wonderfully lucky we are to live in this area. They are food... More

Although I've been to the Orlando area numerous times, I had never made a stop at Lake Eola Park before my most recent trip to Florida. I found Lake Eola Park to be a beautiful and welcoming urban park that is a wonderful place to walk and take in the weather and city skyline. I had seen photos of the... More

This place is great for a beautiful day! Nice walk around the lake, loved feeding the swans! They have a play ground close by although it was quite crowded so we didn't go. We rode the duck boats, so fun and relaxing! Great pricing! $15.00 for up to 4 people. Only downside was the homeless people, they were everywhere! They... More

It was a great place to catch a break from our driving, and taking a nice walk instead. Lots of wildlife, and a clean park, with café's around, green grass, a playground and benches.

I absolutely love this part. But the problem with this park is there is always a lot of homeless people there. They try to keep it under control and the park is very nice it is very family-friendly very pet friendly. It's a great Park. But sometimes you do get the homeless hanging out there. I don't have anything against... More
