Best Places to Run in Orlando
- Waterfront Park: Located about 20 miles west of downtown; this seven-mile trail around Lake Minneola is one to remember. The park offers plenty of parking, restrooms, water, and a playground for the kids.
- Little Econ Greenway Trail: This scenic, multi-purpose trail is located in Jay Blanchard Park. The eight-mile trail is filled with scenic river views and picnic areas, but gets rather crowded on the weekends. A great place to get-a-way without really getting away.
- Cady Way Trail: This trail runs from the Orlando Fashion Square Mall to Showalter Field (Winter Park). The paved three-and-a-half mile trail is a great place to enjoy a nice run as well as take in some urban scenery.
