Lake Eola Park, Orlando

Lake Eola Park, Orlando (must see)

Located on Rosalind Avenue in Orlando, Florida, the Lake Eola Park is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. The attractive and picturesque recreational area is famous for the Linton E. Allen Memorial Fountain, located in the nearby Eola Lake, which changes colors at night. Park visitors will enjoy the 43 acres of sidewalks that allow one to jog or walk while enjoying the scenic views. In addition, there are gondolas and swan-shaped boats available for rental that glide up and down the lake.

There is something for everyone at Eola Lake. A playground for children, a small outdoor terrace café when you need a bite to eat, and the nearby Walt Disney Amphitheatre are some of the treats you will enjoy when you visit. There is also a Chinese pagoda on the grounds.

Many popular events take place in the park. The Spin City Classic features professional and amateur bicycle races every March. Each July, a fireworks exhibit celebrates the Fourth of July, and Fiesta in the Park features arts and crafts, as well as entertainment.

Sundays, with nice weather, are a particularly good time, as there is a farmers' market (10am-4pm), along with food & beer vendors.
There are two quarter feeders if you'd like to feed the swans the bird feed – one next to the pagoda and the other by the playground.
Speaking of which, here you will find one of Orlando's better playgrounds for children. It has slides, juggle gyms, merry-go-rounds and more.
