Thorton & Delaney Park
Thornton Park is a great place to unwind and find real relief in the brick-lined streets of the City’s most stylish district. Just east of Lake Eola in Downtown’s green heart, the residential neighborhood is home to street after street of oak-shaded bungalows. Many of the streets were built in the original Florida “cracker” style with wraparound front porches. A colorful commercial district stretches along Washington Street, Summerlin Avenue, and Central Boulevard, with a European feel to the restaurants and boutiques.
Delaney Park is one of Orlando’s oldest parks. Originally called Duckworth Park, the name was changed in 1959 to Delaney Park. Delaney Park is 7.25 acres of a blend of oak-shaded areas, ball fields, open space, playgrounds and picnic facilities. Limited parking is available on side streets.
