Turkey Lake Park is located at 3401 Hiawassee Road in Orlando, Florida. The park is steps from Universal Orlando and other city attractions. The park consists of 300 acres. Officially it is known as Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake. The park is landscaped and maintained by the city. Picnicking, hiking, biking, and other outdoor options exist for visitors. Hiking is possible along seven miles of trails where flora and fauna native to Florida can be found. Biking is possible on a three mile path. The picnic areas are at the shore of the lake. There is also a pavilion on site with reservations required.
A children's play park, swimming, and sandy beaches are available at Turkey Lake Park. Swimming is not permitted in the lake, only the swimming pool that overlooks the lake. The lake is home to many native animals and fish. It means alligators may be in the lake, which is why swimming is prohibited. There is a fishing pier for those who want to catch largemouth bass or other lake fish. Boating is possible either by bringing your own or renting one for $15. Rental hours are Thursday through Sunday 7am to 11am. The park is open until sunset.
