Fodor's Expert Review Lake Eola Park

Central Orlando Park/Playground
Free

This beautifully landscaped 43-acre park is the verdant heart of Downtown Orlando, its mile-long walking path a gathering place for families, health enthusiasts out for a run, and culture mavens exploring area offerings. The well-lighted playground is alive with children, and ducks, swans, and native Florida birds call the lake home. A popular and expanded farmers' market takes up residence on Sunday morning and afternoon. The lakeside Walt Disney Amphitheater is a dramatic site for concerts, ethnic festivals, and spectacular Fourth of July fireworks. Don't resist the park's biggest draw: a ride in a swan-shaped pedal boat. Up to five adults can fit comfortably in each. (Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.) The Relax Grill, by the swan-boat launch, is a great place for a snack. The park is surrounded by great Downtown and Thornton Park restaurants and lounges. The ever-expanding skyline rings the lake with modern high-rises, making the peace of the park even more welcome.... READ MORE
