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.

  • It's a Fantastic Park for various purposes to visit. Can be a great play day with the children. Can be romantic to walk around with the beautiful scenery. Adventurous with the swan boats. Relaxing for some yoga. Casual gathering with friends to catch up between fresh air or while grabbing a bite within the park, interesting and fun events to be part of or to enjoy them...... so in summary, just a place to get out of the ordinary day.
  • I love Lake Eola Park and the lake so much that my husband and I purchased a home in Lake Eola Heights. Just 4 blocks away allows us to walk to the park every weekend and enjoy all it offers. There are restaurants near by and there's always something going on like the spring festival, fall festival, multiple concerts and events, races, walks for charities, fireworks on the 4th, and much more. If you haven't been there, you should check it out. Enjoy a stroll around the lake, shop at the Farmer's market there on Sunday's, or picnic in the park or have a meal and or drink at World of Beer the lake or the park restaurant or, rent a swan paddle boat and ride around the fountain in the center.
  • We spent the day in the park, which had a farmer's market, which is held every Sunday. Absolutely beautiful lake and park with an eclectic gathering of arts and crafts, with fresh produce stands. We bought a variety of produce, which I might add was top of the line and very tasty. It was a great outdoor activity for the whole family. A must for any first time visitors to the Orlando area or anyone else that wants a bit of natural in the busy city.
  • One of the best parks in Orlando. Restaurants and bars in places around it. Some nature, specifically swans and ducks. Lots of people and other pets. If your dog isn't used to these sorts of things, great place to take him or her to experience something new. Oh and by the way it's open till 12 a.m. which is what makes it one of the best parks in Orlando.
  • A really wonderful Park in the middle of a busy City. I love that this is the location for the Sunday farmers market. Street parking is hit or miss. Dogs on a leash are welcome, which is a really nice added feature. There always seems to be an event going on on the weekend so this is a lively destination. A vending machine near the restrooms that sells water and maybe juice for the kids would be awesome.
