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.”
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.
Winter Garden has a beautiful historic core but is also an ever developing city. New developments in Winter Garden include the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves and the Horizon West Area near Disney World. Winter Garden Village is an open air shopping mall with modern amenities including a gym and movie theater. Here you will find the larger chain stores such as Super Target, Lowes, Marshall’s, and Jo-Ann fabrics.
Horizon West is located in the south of Winter Garden. In 1993 a team of public and private developers got together to begin a master planned community that is now known as Horizon West. In 1995 the Five Village Concept was born. Horizon West would have five “villages” and a town center. Each “village” would consist of a few residential neighborhoods surrounding a village center. 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. The second village was Bridgewater. The town Center is now under development beginning with Hamlin.
