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.

looked for something to do on the way to the airport that would be outdoors. Love outdoor sculptures and water. Nice scenic walk around the lake with fountain in middle, swan boat rides, swans in the lake, mom and babies. Interesting sculpture and plenty of benches to sit relax, watch the water and swans.

Situated in Downtown Orlando Lake Eola offers a quiet and peaceful environment. Other than the Disney Icons (Castle, Epcot and the Hat at Hollywood Studios) the Fountain in the middle of the Lake is the most famous object in town. You can take a leisurely walk around the Park or you can rent some of the Floating flamingos and go... More

We visited this park to go to the farmers market that is held here every Sunday. Great market whit both food(come hungry) and other stuff you often can find at a marketplace. Then we went for a walk around the park. Although it was very hot we maneged to survive and got a lovely walk around the beautiful lake.

Lake Eola Park is located in the heart of Downtown Orlando. Whether you’re in the mood for a stroll on their .9 mile sidewalk, or you want to explore the park in their swan-shaped paddle boats, you will have a unique experience all the same. Every weekend they hold a special event, from runs that benefit a special cause to... More

Amazing experience on Sundays, with the farmers market and so many activities outdoors such as yoga practice. Make sure to try the salted caramel porpcorn especially when it's still hot.

Nice large lake that you can walk completely around and not to crowded. Plenty of birds and fish. Lots of restaurants nearby that you can walk to. A good day can be had for little money.
