Lake Eola Park, Orlando

4.6
Lake Eola Park is known for its namesake lake with its recognizable fountain, as well as views of the city skyline. Plan a picnic on the green, or children can enjoy the playground. Residents and visitors mingle at events on the great lawn and along the many jogging paths. After dark, the fountain changes color, and a walkway around the lake fills with visitors eager to see the spectacle. A Chinese pagoda in the eastern part of the park joins the light show, and LED lights keep the walkways well lit.

    This lake is the best thing about downtown Orlando. The path around it is easily walk able. Lots of benches to stop and relax. At nights the fountain lights up with a multitude of colors.  more »

    Every time I go to Orlando will the Centre (Church St) and spend a little time relaxing at Lake Eola park. This last time until a wedding was going on. The Park is beautiful, the playground is great for the kids and you can walk for its sidewalks. Worth

    Great area, nice walking around the lake with lots of shade. Nice play area for kids. Close to all things downtown. Visit on weekends and the many festivals that are free.  more »

    Lake Eola park is beautiful. I love the historic fountain and the swans. My most recent visit was for the pulse memorial which was beautiful. Sometimes there are homeless people who ask for money, but sometimes not. It's nice for a stroll on the weekends. I like when there is live music at the farmers market. I think it's well lit after dark. If you can take the sunrail, the church street station is not a terrible walking distance from the park. It's really one of my favorite places in all of Orlando.

    Humidity at 90 today, but I got a banana strawberry smoothie after 2 mile jog and 300 SPARTA push sets... good work out today. I have not been here since the club shooting--- but today although humidity on blast was good. Vendors are a good concept to bring people outside... to communicate with one another. They should be there at least Thursday to Sunday every week.

    I've seen a swan for the first time! Three people at the park were pretty friendly & love to feed the birds. I saw some interesting trees & sculptures. I left early because it was just too hot for me. I really enjoyed it.

    Usually very clean. Great security. Awesome views and an amazing place to relax with friends or family. Not to mention, interesting walks with historic monuments and culture. Came here on the Fourth of July. Loved it.
