Discover More About College Park, Orlando

College Park is located between North Orange Blossom Trail and the 1-4 Express. It is home to four major lakes: Lake Ivanhoe, Lake Silver, Lake Adair, and Lake Concord. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of Fairview Shores (to the north), North Orange (to the east), Lake Dot (to the south), and Princeton/Silver Star and Spring Lake (to the west). 

One of College Park’s biggest draws (other than its quiet, well-maintained residential streets!) is its close proximity to the Downtown Orlando area. It’s about a 10-minute drive to get to the center of the city and access all the exclusive amenities there, from top-rated restaurants to exciting entertainment. This neighborhood is vibrant and quite affluent, and property in this area is very desirable. 

Explore College Park Real Estate

Real estate in the neighborhood is highly sought-after. As a result, home prices typically start at higher price points, but homebuyers do have a lot of choice in regards to home style. College Park is recognized for its picturesque, cottage-style homes—typically single-story constructions with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and mature trees on the property.

Some of the more affordable properties for sale are located on the east side, and these homes are typically older—and smaller—bungalows. However, they are well cared for and still offer the peaceful College Park lifestyle that so many are after. While mostly single-family homes, there are also some condo and townhouse units for sale in College Park. These properties, as well, start at lower price points and are a possible option for first-time homebuyers.

College Park homes are generally luxury properties, available as both new construction builds and older (even historic) homes. In regards to the latter, there are (in rare occasions) homes for sale in College Park with construction dates going all the way back to the 1940s.

For golf enthusiasts, there is also real estate for sale on the Dubsdread Golf Course. The most exclusive properties in this community have lake views. While many of the homes are separated from the lake by the street, there are a few College Park homes (the majority of which are on Lake Concord and Lake Silver) that have their own dock. 


College Park Highlights & Amenities

Although the neighborhood of College Park, Orlando is mainly residential, there are plenty of things to do—and even more opportunities beyond. From gift shops to fine dining, there's much to discover in College Park. Its four big lakes provide ambience and add beauty to the area, and there are even more small parks located throughout the community. 

Lake Ivanhoe Park is a green space that surrounds College Park’s largest lake. This is a great place for a stroll or to walk the dog. Plus, it is also a popular place for water-skiing. In contrast, Don Dudley Park on Lake Concord is a smaller green space, but it offers beautiful lake views. There are several community parks in College Park, many of which have playgrounds for the kids. Albert Park is centrally-located and has a pavilion, while Princeton Park has a baseball diamond.

In regards to landmarks, the Jack Kerouac House (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is found on Clouser Avenue. Once home to the famous American writer, the house hosts a project where passionate, aspiring writers can live there for a season—under the condition that they produce work, of course.

Other College Park highlights include the College Park Neighborhood Center, the Central Florida Community Arts (a performing arts center), and the highly-rated Dubsdread Golf Course. Many of the community’s shops and restaurants are located along Edgewater Drive. Popular dining and hangout spots include The Acre, a wedding venue, Turci Pasta, a highly-rated Italian restaurant, and Shakers, an American-style café.
