About Winter Park

About WinterparkThe City of Winter Park is located just north of Orlando in Orange County, Florida. It is nine square miles in area and has an average elevation of 100 feet. More than 28,900 residents call Winter Park home.

One of Florida's finest cities, it is famous for its stately trees, abundant parks, brick-lined streets, spectacular homes, world-class museums, vibrant lakes and fine shops along Park Avenue and in Hannibal Square.

Although sometimes perceived as a bedroom community to the Orlando Metropolitan Area, Winter Park contains the full range of residential uses, a premier central business district, major office buildings, hospital and a small amount of industrial property. This full range of land use, plus the economic and ethnic diversity of the city's population qualifies Winter Park as a city which can stand alone.

The largest employers in the Winter Park community are Rollins College, the City of Winter Park, Winter Park Memorial Hospital and Full Sail University.
