Lake Eola Park

Although technically not a dog park, the nearly 1-mile walking path around Lake Eola in downtown Orlando, Florida is very pet-friendly. There are several dog-related events that take place at Lake Eola Parkin Orlando, FL, each year, and almost any time of the day you'll find pet owners taking their four-legged friends for a walk around the lake. Poop bag dispensers are conveniently located on the lake path so that you can clean up after your pet. In addition to the lake path, visitors can also rent swan boats to enjoy with pets up to 5 lbs. There is also an amphitheater where concerts and other events are regularly held, as well as a couple of pet-friendly restaurants next to the lake, which will allow you to dine outdoors with your pooch.

    Nice Walk

    Nice walk for your dog. Even better when the Paws in the Park event is going on!

    Great park for a walk

    Great place to walk the dog with plenty of shade and restaurants. Beware If your dog is reactive to other dogs, wild life, or humans. The day I went it was packed and had to pay for parking but it was worth it.

    We love Lake Eola

    It is such a nice place to visit. We walked around the lake two times. We stopped at Metro Expresso Pizza for Lunch, yes, they are pet friendly. The staff was amazing and very accommodating to our dog. We also went by Eola Pets to buy some freshly baked treats for our good boy. and before we left we rode the swan boats, I recommend to bring your own life jackets for your pup, they do not provide one.

    Great park to walk

    Nice park in downtown Orlando to walk your furbaby around the lake. Concrete path, lots of grass. Several restaurants with outdoor patio.

    Beautiful Park, Dog-Friendly

    This is a beautiful place! Once or twice around the lake would be a perfect, light walk for small dogs or a slightly out-of-shape pooch like mine. Big dogs who are in good shape would probably be happy with 5 laps around. The park is definitely dog-friendly. There are well-stocked poop-bag stations everywhere. (Of course, I always carry my own. My pup hasn't quite mastered waiting until we're right near one of the poop stations.) The scenery is lovely and there are lots of interesting grassy and mulched areas for dogs to explore. If you go there, stop for lunch at Relax Grill, which is right in the park, near the amphitheater. It's dog-friendly, offers a great view and good, cheap eats.

    I come here once a week

    The geese attack dogs.

    Needs an off leash area for small doga

    There are many condo and apartment residents in the downtown Orlando area that need a place for our dogs to play off leash. Surely an area of the park can be fenced so our dogs can play together.
