The basics

There are countless things to do in Lake Eola Park, including a weekly farmers market to visit, complete with fresh produce and live entertainment. Children run amok on the Lake Eola playgrounds, and the iconic swan boats are a favorite for all ages. The park also has its own performance space, the Walt Disney Amphitheater, which hosts events throughout the year.

Book a guided tour to visit the park’s landmarks and art displays and to learn about the history of the area. Plus, take in the views of the Orlando skyline rising in the distance, a stunning contrast to the peace and quiet of the park and a beautiful reminder of the nearby city.
