About
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.

    Lovely place to visit, which I do whilst on vacation in Orlando
    Lovely clean park, Swan fountain in middle of lake, leisurely 0.9 mile walk round the Lake. Sunday Market stalls, places to sit, dine, have a drink. Clean toilets.

    Excellent views for walking
    Such a beautiful park with so many swans, clean bathrooms and lots of big beautiful trees. This park is so beautiful and a must to walk around its lake to see lots of birds including beautiful swans. Parking was easy to find around the park. The bathrooms were clean and even had plenty of TP in them. :)

    Nice Park
    This lake is very nice for everybody. I had a great time, the weather was very nice, the breeze, the views. There are a lot of animals to see. It need more cleaning in some areas because the animals droppings, otherwise I really enjoyed my time!

Hidden away from the theme park bubble, this is perfect for a walk, run, or it simply sit and rest.

Take in the sights and the sounds, and enjoy this part of Orlando that deserves your time.

Good playground for the kids, and so fun to see local wildlife. Lots of swans, turtles, and other birds to see anywhere on the loop around the park.

It was a craft show going on. My only problem was there were too many dogs and I have a dog but I don't take her everywhere, the show was nice

Larry & I enjoyed walking on the trail around the Centennial Fountain, with the lovely ducks, swans, squirrels & other kinds of birds just nearby & we thought they are used to having many people around or near them!

Lake Eola Park was really nice! There were a ton of swans there. We took a swan boat ride around the lake. It was very crowded, but otherwise great!

Visiting Lake Eola Park is a nice way to escape the city and relax under a tree by the water. While there one may observe the many waterfowl in the park or rent a swan boat and peddle around the lake.

Lovely park for stroll around the pond and great spot for bird watching minus all the homeless people. The ibis and swans were beautiful to look at. The Bums not so much.

Impossible to park construction everywhere. Drove in circles before giving up. Just go to Morse museum it was worth it.
