Orlando is surrounded by picturesque spaces that offer rejuvenation and recluse from an otherwise busy city of Orlando. The Split Oak Forest Mitigation Park is a nature’s haven that surrounds two lakes—Lakes Hart and Mary Jane—and also a county park, Moss Park. The park has been interestingly named after its giant, 200-year old oak tree that was split about 50 years ago and continues to grow even till today. Full of wild trails to walk down on and varied terrain, this attraction makes up for one of the important attractions of Orlando.
- There are two viewing platforms/overlooks along the hiking trail - one on the South Trail and one on the Lake Loop overlooking Bonnet Pond.
- Entry is free.
- Rent a car from city centre.

Great place for long quiet hikes. Plenty to hear and see if your walk us quiet. Local mini zoo right down the way.
Nice place for a peaceful hike. I recommend printing out a trail map before you go. I took a photo of the trail map that was posted. That's what we had to go on.
It was fun to see the animals. It's pretty small but your donation goes to helping wildlife and animals in need. The staff is really nice.
Very peaceful and nature filled if you want to take a walk to clear your mind and renew strength.
Lovely well maintained trails, lots of nature and animals abound. During my most recent hike we spotted 2 deer that jumped across the path in front of us as well as small animal tracks and more birds and butterflies than I could count. Saw giant yellow swallowtail butterflies, mockingbirds and sand cranes to name a few. Will be back!
