It's nice to take a break from the roaring cars of downtown and walk around Lake Davis. This is a small lake in a residential area of downtown, with plenty of lovely mansions. There are many birds and beautiful cypress trees along the shore. There is a cute duck crossing street sign at adjacent Lake Cherokee! The ducks cross from Lake Davis, through graceful Cherokee Park, to Lake Cherokee. And many trees to shade you. Make sure you include Lake Cherokee in your walk because it is glorious. The sidewalk is raised up high above the lake making for a nice vantage point, and there are tropical trees towering above you. At Lake Cherokee, when the sidewalk ends, cross the road and continue around the lake. Some houses appear to block the way back, but continue around the houses and you will get back to the other side of the lake. It's very pretty in this Lake Cherokee Historic District

After, have a cup of tea and cookie at 903 Mills Market Cafe, where you can sit outside and listen to the cicadas buzzing mightily in the oak trees above.
Twelve minutes drive south, check out Cypress Grove Park, a gorgeous place with winding paths, a lake with a gazebo, a 1920s mansion, a playground, and tall unusual cypress trees strung with Spanish moss.
Six minutes north, check out Lake Eola, a glorious lake with animals galore, sculptures, and a city atmosphere with tall glass buildings.
