Great place for birding. There are many types of birds here. It was a very nice place to relax and be Disney free. There are swam paddle boat rentals, there was a 45 minute wait on the day I was there and I was pressed for time, but it seemed like a fun time. You can buy feed from a machine to feed the swans, so bring quarters. There are sculptures to look at as you walk around the lake on a paved path. There is a fountain show at nighttime and a place for shows and /or live music. You could easily spend 2 hours here.
My absolute favorite park in Orlando! There's festivities and a nice park for children to play. This was my first time attending the Farmers Market. It exceeded my expectations. Although I would have like to see more fruit and vegetable vendors. There were many other vendors serving dishes, handmade merchandise and apparel. Large crowd, great vibe!
Beautiful place! Great vibe. The wildlife interactions are great fun for the kids. A gem in our own backyard. Vendors are friendly and plentiful. Loved it!
Beautiful park.... Heart of downtown Orlando too! If I may suggest a certain time to go, go at dusk! The fountain on the lake will light up to music played there every few minutes and it's truly beautiful if you don't miss it! There are a few events every month, and a few every Sunday (such as the Orlando Farmers Market).
Beautiful swans, geese, and ducks. They all love romaine - chopped up. Park is very well manicured. Bathrooms are always clean. Playground will kewp little ones active for hours. Ice cold water from a clean fountain on playground. Farmers market on Sundays is just fantastic!
