This spot is a local staple of Orlando. In the heart of Downtown, this lake is well-known for its large fountain, swan boats, and roaming wildlife! White and black swans surround this stunning .9 mile lake where locals exercise, visit the Sunday farmers market, see shows in the amphitheater, take photographs, and go out to eat! During the holidays you will see fireworks, a musical Christmas tree, and other decorations! It’s a beautiful sight to see and the perfect setting for a picnic by the lake. Location & Directions >>
75 years of wetlands, ponds, flowers, and greenery, Mead Gardens is a historical sight & a must-see in Winter Park.

This place is wonderful for taking photos of the wildlife and the beautiful grounds as well as birding, having a picnic, and geocaching! Find out more & plan your visit >>
