The Orlando Land Trust
The ORLANDO LAND TRUST was established as a means of improving and protecting parks, playgrounds, and green spaces for all Orlando residents.
The mission of Orlando Land Trust is to protect and improve green space for a healthier Orlando. For its inaugural project, Orlando Land Trust has committed to preserve, protect and expand Lake Eola Park. To realize this goal the Trust is collaborating with The Trust for Public Land to acquire the Murrell property on the southwest corner of Lake Eola Park and convert it into public green space.
