Lake Underhill Path... Linking Four Parks in Orlando

The Lake Underhill Path is a 2.5 mile route that links four Orlando city parks: Orlando Festival Park, Col. Joe Kittinger Park, Lake Underhill Park, and Park of the Americas. Along the way, see Orlando Executive Airport, a Vietnam F-4 Phantom jet exhibit, jet skiers, and a dog park. This is a popular local Orlando route that links the Lake Underhill neighborhood to downtown and recreational facilities. Ultimately, the path will link to the Cady Way Trail.

Airplane enthusiasts will enjoy Kittinger Park. There’s a speaker in the park that allows you to listen to the control tower as you watch private aircraft land and depart.

Orlando Festival Park to Col. Joe Kittinger Park

Starting on Maguire Blvd./Crystal Lake Road at Fairgreen Street, go to Orlando Festival Park and Orlando Skate Park, past Orlando Executive Airport (stop for a biplane ride!). Continue to Col. Joe Kittinger Park with its refurbished F-4D Phantom jet as was piloted by Kittinger in Vietnam. Honoring Col. Kittinger, the park includes the refurbished Vietnam Phanton F-4 jet exhibit, playground, restrooms and parking. Originally built in 1992, it was re-opened in 2011 and the jet installed in 2014.

One of Orlando's most-used parks, a walking path circles the lake including a pedestrian bridge closed to bicycles. Stop at the fitness stations along the path, or watch the jet skiers from the boat ramp and dock. Parking and restrooms are available.
