Living in Winter Park
Winter Park is a favorite destination for nature lovers.
You’ll find a dizzying choice of more than 70 parks, all hosting various events, festivals, and celebrations throughout the year.
Among Winter Park’s many green spaces, Mead Botanical Garden stands out. Within the 47.6-acre park lies a diverse ecosystem of riparian forest, flowing streams, wetlands, sandhill, open water, and mature longleaf pine forest—all of which support the incredibly diverse animal species found in the park, especially birds.
You’ll also find a discreet array of luxe boutiques in downtown Winter Park, all of which cater to the city’s discerning residents.
