The Swans of Lake Eola Park Receive Their Checkup During Annual Swan Round-Up
On Saturday, November 11, 2023, 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 Lake Eola Park. At the round-up, the city’s iconic swans will receive their yearly medical check-ups and well-being assessments.
During the annual Swan Round-Up, specially-trained volunteers corral the swans at the west end of the park where a temporary clinic is set up for them to be weighed, inoculated and provided an individual medical exam 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.
