College Park Live and Up Close

(Published on - 7/16/2020 10:36:35 PM)

‘College Park Main Street exists to create and sustain a vibrant business community along Edgewater Drive.’ College Park, like many other neighborhoods in the great city of Orlando, supports local businesses, whether be new or old. They work to recruit new businesses to Edgewater Drive to attract more people to visit the College Park business community. Aside from businesses, residents/people of College Park show their pride in the community through community events and volunteer efforts.

How did it get its name?

College Park derives its name from the many streets within its bounds that were named for institutions of higher learning such as Princeton, Harvard, and Yale.

See and do

Shopping, dining, and nightlife is the intersection of Princeton and Edgewater – CP’s de facto “Main Street.” You will find lovely lakes (Lake Ivanhoe and Lake Adair), walking paths, and parks with playgrounds for kids. Visit one of nearby Loch Haven Park’s cultural attractions, which include the Orlando Science Center, Mennello Museum of American Art, and Orlando Shakespeare Theater. College Park is home to several unique and historic sites, as well as some of the most beautiful murals in Orlando.

Eat

Want Japanese? Mexican? Diner fare? College Park’s diverse dining can go from creative burgers at Graffiti Junktion to Caribbean fare at Taste. Feeling Parisian? Hit Les Petit Pleasures, a small French authentic bakery supplying crepes, croissants, and café au lait. So authentic, you will feel like you are in Paris.
