About Winter Garden
Offering the best of small-town life with access to big-city conveniences, the city of Winter Garden is known as the "Land of Pleasant Living." The community is located in Central Florida within the western region of Orange County, which also consists of Orlando and other surrounding communities such as semi-rural Oakland, Crown Point, Stoneybrook West, Horizons West, and Independence as well as many new developments. With its central location, Winter Garden lends easy access to Highway 50, the East Expressway (408), the Florida Turnpike, the new 429 Expressway, and the Orlando International Airport.
The citrus industry is very important to Winter Garden, with such companies as Roper Growers Cooperative, Heller Brothers Packing and Louis Dreyfus Citrus employing hundreds of people in the area. Once known primarily for its extensive citrus industries, Winter Garden is beginning to branch out to attract other businesses such as computer and investment companies. The Historical downtown region has undergone major renovations, making it an active center of the community. Stop at one of the many outdoor cafes to watch the cyclist and joggers on The West Orange Trail which runs through the historic district. Students of this area are served by the Orange County Public School District, which includes some of the best schools in the state, as well as many colleges and vocational schools in the surrounding area.
While residents of Winter Garden are afforded the opportunities in nearby Orlando for entertainment, there are many reasons, such as local events and superb recreational facilities, for them to stay right at home. Winter Garden real estate is affordable, with single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses available at prices to suit all budgets.
