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.

    Great Fun Park
    This is a great fun park for so many people…friends, couples, and families. A lot of fun activities they host too! They also have a fun Sunday farmers market which has a great gelato food truck.

    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. :)

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.

Gorgeous, unique park to spend some time outside. Unfortunately the homeless population, at least for our visit yesterday, is out of control. We did one circle of the lake and really would have liked to spend more time there but as two women walking we did not feel safe to do so as we were aggressively yelled at by one man just after the swan boat rental, followed by a group in the swan feeding area and begged several times on our 0.9 mile walk. It really ruined the entire experience that would have otherwise been beautiful. I can’t say I’d recommend. I’m no stranger to bigger cities and beggars but they were quite intimidating. I’d probably only return for an event where maybe they have some security to control the issue.
