About College Park Homes For Sale & Orlando Real Estate
College Park is Urban Living With a Small Town Feel
College Park is another one of Orlando’s “Park” neighborhoods with enough character to surprise anyone. The neighborhood’s name fits in perfectly; in fact, even the streets comply with the theme. Street names derive from different collegiate institutions like University Drive, Harvard Street, and Yale Street. Despite its name though, the neighborhood does not feature any colleges or universities within its boundaries, but it’s definitely not lacking anything else!
College Park provides everything you need nearby. Local small businesses, shops, eateries, art venues, boutiques, and more line Edgewater Drive, College Park’s main thoroughfare. Long brick streets, lakes, and huge oak trees make this a quiet residential community full of charm. The cozy feel may remind you of a small town, but big city amenities are just minutes away.
The nearby city makes College Park a perfect area for those who work in the Downtown Orlando area. The commute is very manageable, and most residents won’t have to drive more than 5 to 15 minutes in rush-hour traffic to the downtown area. There is also plenty of opportunity for work within the area as well. It’s one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city and as it continues to grow, so does the economy.
Quaint shops, local restaurants, and special events decorate “Main Street” in College Park. Trevi Pasta is one of the area’s best Italian restaurants. The chef, Angelo Falcone, crafts homemade pastas and sauces for an authentic dining experience. This charming neighborhood is also home to many top night-time spots including Ollie’s Public House.
College Park is also home to the oldest public golf course, DubsDread. It was originally designed in 1924 and renovated in 2008. The classic course has plenty of history attached to it as the former site of the Orlando Golf Open.
