It is dirty with trash & homeless people all over. There are fountains in the lake, but they weren't turned on. There are no swans & no swan boats.

Living here in Orlando we always take our guest for at least one walk around Lake Eola. The sculptures they have added are great. My favorite is the flying birds rising out of the lake.

Very nice park in downtown Orlando. It was great spending a couple hours there walking around the lake and then doing a 30 minute swan boat ride. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Nice place to hang out especially on Sundays with the farmer market. The swan boats are cute. And everything is very clean and maintained.

The path and the lake are nice which seem like a nice place to walk around, but it’s not. The area is filled with homeless people asking for money. Some of them are sometimes somewhat aggressive. The Restaurant selection on the lake side is pretty...More
