Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful setting with beautiful swans”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Loved spending an hour walking around this lake taking in the art installations. Well maintained and manicured. A rare and lovely collection of live swans and birds grace the lake. Had fun on the Swan boats peddling about the central fountain

“A Beautiful Lake and a Must See!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We found this lake beautiful and chocked full of interesting things to see. A beautiful walkway completely circles the lake and is a joy to walk. Swan row boats can be rented and taken out on the lake. Disney has an amphitheater on one end of the lake and there is an amazing fountain in the middle of the lake. Beautiful live white an black swans can be seen around the lake as well as stunning art work. Definitely a great way to spend a few hours on a sunny afternoon!

“A Must Go Park!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is an excellent park. It has everything you need, a beautiful lake with tons of ducks and swans swimming in it, and a new playground for kids to play at. Also there is tons of land to walk and even have picnics at!

I've been to Orlando four times but never thought of checking the downtown area .. My friend and went for an exploring drive which took us to the very beautiful place .. The pic I posted speaks to itself. I found it breathtaking.

“Such an Interesting and Pretty Park.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We enjoyed walking around the lake and seeing the many different kinds of swans. Very enjoyable tour of Eola house. We learned so much about the Orlando area and were surprised at just how beautiful it really is.
