Baldwin Park Highlights & Amenities
The community of Baldwin Park is built around two major lakes: Lake Baldwin and Lake Susannah. This is one of the biggest draws of the area, as Baldwin Park has acres upon acres of parks, green spaces, and trails around the lakefront. Residents love getting out and about, which is also why the community spirit is as vibrant as it is.
Lake Baldwin Park and Harbor Park are both located around Lake Baldwin, and together they circle the entirety of this body of water. Here you’ll find park benches, walking and running trails, fishing piers, and a dog park.
Many of the community’s shopping and dining options are found on New Broad Streets, which leads down to the lake. This area is quaint, designed for walkability, with tree-lined, cobblestone streets. Retail is both local boutiques and large chain stores; the area includes a large grocery store, as well. The northern portion of the community is home to the Orlando VA Medical Center, and the Orlando Veterans’ Memorial Park.
