Lakeview walk, Winter Park
Print Leave a comment
On a short stretch of Lakeview Drive you can walk with unobstructed views of Lake Virginia. It's magical with the shimmering blue water and the tall trees that line the lake. Pretty mansions are on one side of you while the lake is on the other. Many of the lake shores in Winter Park are built with mansions but this stretch of lake is open for you to view! Continue your walk by taking the lovely path on the Rollins College campus that hugs the shore of the lake. This path takes you through a wonderland of trees hung with Spanish moss! There are also three sculptures of row boats that you can sit on! The path ends at Dinky Dock Park on campus. Afterwards have a meal and people watch on Park Ave, where you feel like you're in Europe!
Another wonderful walk along a lake and past mansions is at Kraft Azalea Garden and the neighborhood that surrounds it.

Starting at Dinky Dock Park on the Rollins Campus you can walk on a path that hugs the lake. At French Ave, you can then walk along the sidewalk on Lakeview Dr, looking across the road at the lake. If you need to park your car, park along Park Ave and then cross Fairbanks Ave to get onto the campus.
