Maitland’s Best-kept Secret?

Okay, so maybe it’s no secret to Maitland-ites, but Lake Lily gives Lake Eola a run for its money in the parks department.

This beautifully landscaped park is less than 5 miles from my office and I’ve driven by hundreds if not thousands of times. What’s strange? I’ve never stopped.


So today I decided to enjoy the unbelievable Central Florida weather and spend my lunch hour outdoors—Lake Lily was a logical choice.

I think these pictures (taken from my cell phone, by the way) say it all. Even taken from a crappy cell phone camera, the scenery is gorgeous.


Lake Lily features:
Five Spectacular Acres for Your Enjoyment
Picturesque Wedding Gazebo
Secluded Shady Picnic Areas
Kid’s Playground
Serene Boardwalk
Sensational Jogging Trails
Beautifully Restored Historic Waterhouse Residence Museum

Lake Lily is located at 701 Lake Lily Drive in Maitland (off 17-92, nearing Horatio)

  1. I’m so glad you posted about this. I’ve driven by this park many times and have always wanted to hang out there, but never have. I just may have to now.

    By the way, I can’t believe those awesome photos were taken with your little phone! That’s awesome.
