Very nice, family friendly urban hike. Restaurants, public bathrooms and nearby parking make this an easy and enjoyable stroll and lunch.

Best at Christmas for all the lights and decorations, the city purchased all new decor in 2019 and it is quite special.

One of the best trails in Orlando for the views. Swans and other birds everywhere. Very highly trafficked area downtown.

Minimal shade, but lots of birds, and sometimes they play music throughout the park. It can get very crowded though.

A nice place to walk downtown. The lake is beautiful, there are lots of swans and ducks to see, and there is music around the whole loop.

Not really a “trail.” Like another user said, it’s basically a sidewalk around Lake Eola. It does have a few good picture spots. It is crowded a majority of the time. You can rent swans for the lake or stop for lunch at several places along the circle. Beautiful view of the Downtown Orlando skyline. It IS a hotspot for the transient/homeless population. Four stars because the bathrooms are always terrible.

Crowded most of the time. Not very relaxing at all. It’s not really a trail. It’s a sidewalk around a lake.

Great for walking the pup/training for longer trails. We do about 3 - 5 loops every time we go.

Very flat with sidewalk all around. Many benches for a rest. Lots of wildlife - turtles, squirrels and many types of birds particularly swans & ducks. Slightly crowded, partial shade, homeless people and bathrooms which are not clean.

Running

I've been jogging this trail regularly for well over a decade. Very busy urban setting & extremely popular for jogging, walking, dog walking & photography. The park has one of the best views of the Orlando skyline of anywhere in Central Florida. There are a number of major events involving the park each year including the Food & Wine Festival, concerts, parades, holiday season shows, & cultural events. Relax Grill is an outdoor seating restaurant adjacent to the swam boat rentals. The only downside of the park are the public restrooms.

One of my favorite places to run in the city. You can’t get bored because there’s always something to look at. Very easy run but watch out for the swan poop.

A nice walk located in the middle of Orlando. Lots of swans, ducks, geese, and other birds. Lots of homeless people sleeping too. Someone also asked my boyfriend if he sold weed ... (no he doesn’t lol).
