Want to explore these charming College Park homes? (See listings below) Dating from the arrival of the South Florida Railroad in 1880, College Park is a distinct enclave within the greater Orlando area. The neighborhood derives its name from one of its early 20th century subdivisions, Rosemere, which named its streets for famous institutions of higher education, including Princeton, Harvard, Yale, and Cornell.
Life in College Park
As its name suggests, College Park is home to a large number of greenspaces and outdoor recreation options. These range from small neighborhood pocket parks to large multi-use community recreational facilities and playspaces.

Walk the course and you’ll be walking in the footsteps of the game’s greats including Tiger Woods, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, and Claude Harmon.
College Park is also known for its shopping and dining, including fun and eclectic restaurants, coffee shops and specialty options of all types. Edgewater Drive, the area’s main thoroughfare, is the home to a host of eateries and offers an ideal setting for a family outing or a date night stroll.
College Park Communities
College Park is characterized by its friendly community atmosphere where neighborliness is second nature. Along with subdivisions, the emphasis here is on charming in-town homes with large lots and plenty of options for outdoor living. Ardsley Manor is a personal favorite, especially the homes encircling Lake Silver. The Demetree family originally developed it and some of the family still resides there. Walkability is also a desirable attribute of College Park neighborhoods, and homes near popular shopping areas are especially in demand.
Families living in College Park have options for both private and public schools. Public school students attend highly regarded Orange County Public Schools, including Edgewater High School where community members often gather on Friday evenings to cheer on the Eagles. Private school options include St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School, Bishop Moore Catholic High School, St. Vincent’s Academy, and Orlando Junior Academy.
