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 a a diverse array of food, crafts, and other booths and music. I tried the German food and it was very good. I also tried the homemade ice cream and it was excellent. Parking is scarce. I paid $20 to park in a private lot. I plan on returning next year.

On Mother's Day I visited Lake Eola with my young adult daughter. We enjoy walking around the lake and watching the swans & other large birds. On Sunday's there is a Farmer's Market for some casual shopping. There are a few swan boats (paddle boats) for rent. There is also a large and busy playground. The park is nicely landscaped... More

This park is so tranquil, yet it's located right in the middle of downtown Orlando. There is a big lake with beautiful swans and ducks. There are modern office buildings around the lake and they add to the beauty of the park. They offer swan paddle boat rides for a fee and I would love to do that next time.... More

This is a lovely place to visit, very peaceful surprisingly in a busy area. Would visit a again but suggest you do it as part of another activity as it is not an all day place.

We went to the Farmers Market on Sunday and there were many booths of food, jewelry, crafts, etc. The lake was very pretty and if you love swans, you will have a blast looking at them. There were many different type birds all around the lake. It is a nice place to sit under a tree and have a picnic... More

Sure, you can walk around the perimeter of the park. Hopefully your heart will be touched by poor souls that you might encounter in the vicinity. On occasion you might happen upon a concert of some sort but you can't count on that. The illuminated fountain( at night) may entertain you for a quick Boston minute but after that it's... More

My wife and I visited Lake Eola park on a Sunday in May to visit the market. Considering its location (smack in the centre of Orlando) it was a refreshing day, strolling round to large lake filled with swans and a variety of other wildlife. Musicians play around the lake and the day we visited a young man was playing... More

I went there looking for a lakefront type restaurant, there is one, its pet friendly, but i just dont want to dine around dogs ( i like dogs just not while im eating out). for me there's not much to do here, when around Christmas again, I found it colorful and festive. Nice to stroll around the park.
