The development of Baldwin Park near downtown Orlando began several years ago, and from the beginning they sought to preserve the natural beauty of Florida. Recently, the Baldwin Park community was recognized again for this commitment to the environment. You can read more by going to www.BaldwinParkFL.com and checking out the community and news tabs. It is truly a beautiful place to live, because of all the parks surrounding and throughout the neighborhood. Baldwin Park is really all about greenspace and preserving the areas around the lakes. There is a 2.5 mile path around Lake Baldwin with environmentally protected lands. The city of Orlando and the developers have worked with the Audubon Society to restore and protect these sensitive areas.
There are plenty of areas that are also devoted to fun too. The path brings out dozens of people at almost any time of day walking, running, biking and skating. At one end of the lake in the Winter Park area is Fleet Peeples Dog Park. Yes, a park just for dogs with lake access, and trails through the woods to walk. There are also people and kid friendly parks all over Baldwin Park with playgrounds, big open spaces for football and kite flying, as well as baseball fields and soccer fields. Audubon Park Elementary School is right in the neighborhood as well as Glenridge Middle School. GMS shares their track, soccer field, tennis courts and basketball courts benefitting the school and the community. Baldwin Park also has three swimming pools and fitness centers just for residents. And all of this surrounds a Village Center with shopping and services within walking or biking distance. Even the Cady Way Trail runs right around the edge of Baldwin Park, so you can ride your bike to the mall or East to Winter Springs.
