One of our fave ways to spend an afternoon with kids in Lake Nona is just enjoying being together and enjoying being outdoors! The weather here is so nice, you just have to take advantage of it. This park boasts a playground, bike and jogging trails, a walking path, and plenty of open space for a pick-up soccer game or maybe some frisbee!

We love packing up a cute picnic and soaking up the sun in the multi-use field. You can film your next Tik Tok, read a book or join in on the fun outdoor games—the options are endless for both you and the kids! And that’s the best part—this isn’t just fun for the kiddos, it’s a fun time for you too!
