Parks & Nature

Orlando's natural beauty and landscape make it a great place for soaking up the sun and enjoying the outdoors. Many of Orlando's parks and gardens offer free admission on certain days or every day.

  • Black Hammock Adventures on Lake Jessup offers free live alligator and bird exhibits. At the Lazy Gator Bar, guests can join the deck party every Friday and Saturday night and listen to free, live music.
  • Harry P. Leu Gardens offers free admission from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the first Monday of every month.
  • Called Central Florida's "secret garden", the 5.22 acre Kraft Azalea Gardens is located on Lake Maitland in Winter Park and open from 8 a.m. to dusk. Most of all, it's free.
  • University of Central Florida's Arboretum is home to more than 600 plant species on an 80-acre property. Visitors can walk through a self-guided tour to view an impressive number of native plant species.
  • The Winter Park Farmer's Market is held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday. Local vendors and farmers sell their homemade and homegrown specialties, including fruits, vegetables, organic produce, baked goods and more.
  • Lake Eola Park is a 43-acre recreational area in the heart of downtown Orlando. Visitors can picnic along the shore, enjoy one of the many free concerts at the amphitheater, feed the resident swans or stop by the farmer's market on Sundays.
  • Fort Christmas Historical Park is a little slice of old Florida. Visit the fort, the historical homes on site and the gift shop.
  • Big Tree Park in Sanford features 11 acres of natural vegetation and wetlands. 
  • Camp out and roast marshmallows with Disney characters Chip n' Dale at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort for free. The evening sing-a-long around the campfire includes a viewing of a Disney movie. Starts at 7:30 p.m
