About Lake Eola

As Orlando has evolved from a small City centered on the citrus industry to the rapidly growing metropolis we see today, Lake Eola remains an unchanging emblem of Downtown Orlando. It is surrounded by the dining and shopping of Thornton Park, South Eola District and the Central Business District, truly making Lake Eola the center of Downtown. The majestic fountain and graceful swan boats make Lake Eola an exceptional amenity to the area.

Lake Eola Fountain

The original Linton E. Allen Memorial Fountain was built in 1957 and refurbished in 2011. It is known as the “official” icon of the City of Orlando. At night the fountain comes alive with a choreographed show set to music. The colors of the water and the musical themes change with the season. Shows run nightly at approximately 8:30  and 9:30 p.m. lasting about 6 minutes. Show times will change in the Autumn.
