This is a personal account and in no way affiliated with the neighborhood association, that said - I'm the president of the neighborhood association and would still suggest if you live in the South Eola neighborhood to like & follow us at facebook.com/SouthEola
After purchasing our home and finding out there was no neighborhood association to reach out to for help with community issues, I formed the reorganization committee at the suggestion/with the help of Orlando City Hall. A meeting/community vote was held at the Eola House on Lake Eola and we become a recognized association with the city. I have since completed the Mayor's City Academy and iLead city leadership program. I love Orlando and South Eola is a great place to be.. in fact, having lived all over Orlando, I think South Eola is 'the' place to be. Of all the great neighborhoods downtown South Eola has the most walkable 'city feel' with grocery, dining, shopping, nightlife, etc. AND Lake Eola ! The most iconic location in Downtown Orlando is in our neighborhood but 9 out of 10 people have never heard of South Eola, even some people who live here ! As we build our community I think that will change.
