Overview
More
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.

This is a great park to walk around. Popular with joggers and dog walkers. Watch out for the wildlife; ducks, swans and pigeons. The fountain is illuminated at night and there is a small outdoor auditorium for concerts etc.

My boyfriend and I spent a pleasant afternoon here, walking around the lake and renting a swan paddle boat. The charge was only $15 for 30 minutes on the lake.

Lake Eola is a wonderful area to take a walk, relax under the trees, watch the swans and feed the swans too! Only take them shredded lettuce, no bread, which gets stuck in their throats and can kill them slowly. The playground is perfect for...More

there is disable parking along the downtown side of the park near the amphitheater. most parking is metered. but you can usually find non-metered parking on the east side of the lake off Summerland Ave.
