Winter Garden is a city just 14 miles west of downtown Orlando. Originally founded in the 1800’s, Winter Garden started out as a grove of Orange Trees ready to produce a large amount of the country’s citrus needs. In the 1980’s a harsh frost led to the demise of many orange groves and farmers began to consider selling their groves to developers. Winter Garden is now a residential community with old world small town charm and new development. The town motto is “A charming little city with a juicy past.”Winter Garden

Much of the small town charm in Winter Garden is found in the Downtown Historic District. As Winter Garden grew with the building of the train station in the 1880’s a small commercial district emerged after the turn of the century along Plant Street which still stands today. Currently the historic buildings of the Downtown Historic District house small retail shops, cafes, restaurants, museums, and a live theater venue. The West Orange Trail runs down the median of Plant Street and is a hub of outdoor recreational activity. West Orange Trail is 22 acres winding through western Orange County many residents of Winter Garden enjoy walking, biking, and jogging along the trail.

Each village center would include a school and a park with trails connecting to surrounding neighborhoods. The first village to begin development was Lakeside Village.
