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.

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon, and walked all round the lake, having parked the car in one of the parking garages just behind the lake. It was a very pleasant place to visit in the sunshine, with market stalls in one corner and...More

This has to be one or Orlando's best kept secrets. This park is so beautiful. It's full of life and yet so peaceful. The swans, the fountains, Sunday market area all so amazing. It's a must do!

Had Groupon for Swan Boats. Took nice, peaceful little jaunt around the lake in these paddle boats. Little exercise, lots of quiet (except for occasional sirens) Cute little bar on lake also. Definately not going to list this under exciting but nice to decompress here...More
