 Swan Round-Up Time!  

Lake Eola Swans Receive their Annual Checkup


On Saturday, November 12, 2022, District 4 City Commissioner Patty Sheehan and specially-trained veterinarians, volunteers and kayakers will participate in the City of Orlando’s annual Swan Round-Up. At the round-up, the city’s iconic swans will receive their yearly medical check-ups and well-being assessments.  

The Swan Round-Up takes place each year where specially-trained volunteers corral the swans at the west end of the park where a temporary clinic is set up to weigh, inoculate and check each of them by a veterinarian.   

Anyone wishing to help support the health and well-being of Lake Eola’s swans can donate to Swan-A-Thon, a fundraising effort lead by Commissioner Sheehan and managed by the Orlando Community Youth Trust, a non-profit that supports the mission of the City of Orlando’s Families, Parks and Recreation Department.
