Lake Eola Park

Location: East Washington Street, Orlando



Right in the heart of one of the entertainment capitals of the world, you can find an unlikely tranquil leafy retreat. If you visit Lake Eola Park in Orlando you can relax among the flowers, in the shade of the trees, gazing at the downtown skyline all around. Of course, visitors can also walk and run on the 0.9-mile lakeside trail, rent swan-shaped paddle boats, feed the birds or catch a live show at the park's own amphitheatre. There's even a popular lakeside restaurant, but best of all, look out for the nightly music-light-and-water shows at the iconic Lake Eola fountain.
