Explore Parks and Playgrounds in Orlando
If you’re a parent, your whole trip to Orlando may be based around amusement parks, which can be exhausting and stressful. Try making a side trip to a park or playground so you and your family can enjoy a little peace and quiet away from the madness of the Magic Kingdom or Universal Studios.
Cypress Grove Park is located on the shoreline on Lake Jessamine and has many grassy picnic and playground areas. Lake Eola Park has a newly constructed playground with sections for toddlers and children. You can also rent paddleboats or take photos by the popular Lake Eola Fountain. Close to Universal Orlando is Turkey Lake Park, the largest park in Orlando. The activities at Turkey Lake Park are abundant—go hiking or biking on the nature trails; swim, fish or canoe in designated areas; and even take the kids to a petting zoo.
