More Green Space in Downtown

Last updated on May 12, 2022

On May 2 the City of Orlando began the demolition process of the 7-Eleven store on North Rosalind Avenue and Central Boulevard, which will allow for the expansion of Lake Eola Park.

The demolition of the site, where a former 7-Elevan sat, will allow for the creation of a new interim plaza and green space for the park. Additional enhancements to the area will include improved streetscape treatments, new landscaping, and upgraded lighting. The project is expected to be completed in fall 2022.

The demolition, and subsequent expansion of Lake Eola Park, furthers the goal of the DTOutlook to expand open space within the city’s downtown CRA. The acquisition of this property was made possible through a partnership with the Orlando Land Trust, who raised $3.25 million – including $1.65 million in funding from the city’s downtown CRA – to purchase a small parcel, prevent future development, and donate it to the city.
