Off the Beaten Path: Greenwood Urban Wetlands

Just minutes from downtown Orlando, Greenwood Urban Wetlands is a hidden oasis surrounded by beautiful cypress trees. The 19-acre scenic park is centered around a lake with walkways connected by multiple bridges.

Leaves in Florida change colors slower, and towards the end of Fall season is my favorite time to visit the park to get a glimpse of the vibrant orange and yellow landscape.

Greenwood Cemetery is adjacent to the park and is a window into Orlando’s history. Moonlight Walking Tours can be reserved for strolls around the graves to learn about the history of Orlando, its founding families and famous residents. The cost of the tour is free and the events happen once a month.
