Winter Garden is a comfortable mix of commercial and residential space with open-air retail centers and plenty of dining options for the “foodie” in your household.
If you’re looking for a pleasant social cocktail of upscale and traditional housing, with access to local amenities, and a particularly warm and subtropic climate, Winter Garden is definitely an area you should investigate.
Winter Garden has experienced a real boom in housing and population growth in recent years, with mid-to-high level housing in near constant development.
Numerous large-scale neighborhoods have sprung up in the area south of Rd. 50 in what was predominantly farmland in years past. The further south you head, the more rural the area, so there’s a distinct option of choosing how close to town center and commercial businesses you want to live.
The particularly warm climate is due to Winter Garden’s low elevation and proximity to the Tropic of Cancer. Winter Garden is also one of the more racially diverse cities in Central Florida.
Historic downtown Winter Garden and the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves contains a smorgasbord of dining establishments, coffee shops and chain retail. Everything you would need for comfortable daily living. Garden Theatre serves as the premier performing arts center in Winter Garden.
The 299-seat theatre has Mediterranean revival architecture with a Spanish tile courtyard, “Romeo and Juliet” balconies, and lanterns in the windows over the proscenium arch with palm trees adorning either side. There are constant community fundraising events and opportunities to connect with your fellow neighbors.
If you have your own boat, or don’t mind renting one, Winter Garden offers prime dock access to Lake Apopka. There are 76 historic buildings to visit in the Winter Gardens Historic Residential District. And before we forget, if you love the outdoors, Winter Garden accommodates your lifestyle as walking, jogging, and biking activities are always happening in West Orange Trail. West Orange Trail is urban re-purposing at its finest, as the trails are part of an old railroad system that has been fully converted for public use.
Winter Garden has a great reputation for having some of the best schools in Central Florida with the Pre-K through 12th grade acclaimed Private School: Foundation Academy being a highlight.
