Lake Eola Park, Orlando

4.6
#1 of 19 in Nature in Central Florida
Water Body Wildlife Area
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.

  • We have been to Florida many times but this was a first for us as we have never even heard of this place. It was a beautiful peaceful way to spend a morning. We had a lovely walk around the park and h...  more »
  • Orlando is not just amusement parks, and without a doubt the Eola Park is the best example for this. Around you will find a variety of very good quality restaurants, as well as enjoying the good weather and the youth environment that Orlando offers US in the festivities.

  • 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.
  • Was a beautiful park surrounding the lake... a statue commemorating veterans service... a boat load of various birds being fed...great place to eat and have a drink... not to mention the swan pedal boats to your the lake... will most definitely visit again if ever in Orlando.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
