It's easy to see why Winter Garden is "A Great Place to Live." On any given day a stroll down Plant Street will uncover a slice of small-town life at its best. In the heart of the downtown, one can see the successful efforts of redevelopment - quaint stores, restaurants, and the West Orange Trail all enhance the charm and quality of life of this small West Orange County community. Consisting of approximately 17 square miles and a population of 30,065, Winter Garden is well on its way to becoming a premier Florida community.
The city has been expanding rapidly and current estimates put its population at 35,000 by the year 2010. In order to keep up with the explosive growth, many new middle and high income housing projects are in progress. Health care is widely available. Winter Garden is part of the West Orange Healthcare District that boasts ultra modern Health Central Hospital, plus a 228 bed nursing home, and many area specialists to serve your needs. Nearby, one can find an emergency medical clinic and three private nursing homes.
It's no secret that West Orange County has some of the best schools in the state of Florida. Twelve elementary schools, three middle schools, and three high schools serve the West Orange communities. Winter Garden is also the home to Westside Technical Center, a state-of-the-art vocational training institute. Higher education opportunities include the University of Central Florida, Valencia Community College, Rollins College, and a host of private college satellite campuses.
