Exploring Greenwood Urban Wetland in Orlando

There are so many beautiful parks in and around Orlando. I love going out and exploring them. I came across Greenwood Urban Wetland when I was getting on to 408. We drove by and I couldn't wait to go back and check it out. This gorgeous 19-acre park reminded me of being back in Pennsylvania. I took a stroll in the late fall and some of the trees had lost some leaves while others had changed color to a brownish color.

I enjoy how beautiful the view looks for the different angles you see when walking around the trail.

The park has a paved trail that goes around the lake. While the trail goes around one lake you will come across two other smaller lakes that border the trail. It's very peaceful walking around looking at the birds and taking in the scenery. Though the park is bordered by the 408, though I found that the traffic noise was not a nuisance.

There's an agility course for dogs and a community garden too.

You will find benches and picnic tables scattered about. You could grab some lunch at 903 Mills Market right up the street and bring it here for a relaxing lunch. This is a great spot for some tranquility. I look forward to spending time strolling around Greenwood Urban Wetlands
